IBM Sub-Capacity licensing for Informix and Db2
Processor-based licensing with full- and sub-capacity in virtual environments
If Informix or DB2 are to be used in virtual environments, the question of how to calculate licenses quickly arises with processor-dependent licenses. Is a calculation based on logical resources sufficient or must the physical hardware be fully licensed?
IBM offers two concepts for this: Full-capacity for the licensing of the entire physical resources, sub-capacity for licensing using the resources of a virtual environment.
This article is a brief summary of the various IBM sources for licensing Informix or Db2 in virtual environments. It introduces the common processor-based licensing and the associated definitions for full- and sub-capacity. This article also provides a summary of the general requirements and important information about the verification requirements when using sub-capacity licensing.

Informix 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.
