  • Notice of deprecation:

    The Backup to Amazon Simple Storage Services (AWS S3) provided in the ontape utility is considered deprecated and will be removed in an upcoming release. This feature will be replaced with the same REST based technology used in the Informix Primary Storage Manager, to expand coverage to other cloud providers and enhance functionality.

  • End of support:

    The Informix Storage Manager is not a valid storage manager anymore for the ON-Bar utilities. Usage of the old XBSA library with 14.10 is not supported and can lead to unpredictable results including loss of data or inability to restore.
