Informix 14.10. extended limitsInformix Release 14.10.xC2 of September 2019

For the Informix Developer, Informix Express and Informix Innovator-C Editions, IBM increases CPU and memory usage limits with release 14.10xC2.

The increase makes Informix even more attractive for small and medium-size applications.

The upgrade was made without a special announcement - through changes in the license terms with the release of Informix 14.10.xC2.

Customers who upgrade to this version with a new license or an update as part of their product maintenance, will benefit from the enhancements. The extensions do not apply to older releases, also because the limits are fixed in the source.
