IBM Informix on Cloud

White Paper by Bloor
Author Philip Howard
Publish date January 2017

This paper discusses the latest release of IBM Informix, which offers the ability to host Informix on the IBM Cloud (SoftLayer and Bluemix).

Informix, one of the databases offered by IBM, has a long and illustrious history. It is well known as a platform for supporting applications developed by third parties and ISVs, primarily for use in transactional environments.

This is because Informix is a robust offering that combines high performance and functionality with minimal administrative requirements. However, this paper does not discuss these features of the product in any detail.

Instead, we are here concerned with the latest release of IBM Informix, which offers the ability to host Informix on the IBM Cloud.
