IBM Informix - Continuous Availability White Paper

What is this paper about?

IBM® Informix® is the database software voted #1 in customer satisfaction. Clients choose Informix because it is reliable, low cost, and hassle free. Solution providers choose Informix for its best-of-breed embeddability.

Yet, there are some people that still don't 'get' Informix, or realize the many benefits of deploying it:

  • Informix is exceptionally hardware efficient, which means that (in the REAL world) you need to spend MUCH less on hardware to get the same performance as other products.

  • Informix is exceptionally reliable, which means that (in the REAL world) you don't need to pay lots of people to make sure it stays 'up'.

  • Informix is exceptionally scalable, which means that (in the REAL world) it can be idling one moment and then processing thousands of transactions the next with no apparent stress.

Oninit is gathering data about what happens in the REAL world to support these assertions with empirical evidence. in the REAL world.

The data collected will be used to compile a report that will be made available to every CTO, IT Director and IT Manager. Along with this, they will receive a list of all the major application vendors that are now porting their applications to Informix V11.5 and a document outlining the key reasons to choose Informix.

Every response matters.
