IBM Sub-Capacity licensing for Informix and Db2

Processor-based licensing with full- and sub-capacity in virtual environmentsprocessor sub-capacity

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?

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 14.10 - Client-SDK support for 32-bit applications

toolsMany applications based on Informix have two things in common: existential importance for the company and exceptionally long periods of use. It is not surprising that many long-established solutions are available as 32-bit versions.

With the introduction of Informix 14.10 in April 2019 and the current Client-SDK 4.5, HCL and IBM no longer offer 32-bit portings for the new versions.

For software engineering reasons, many 32-bit applications can only be ported to 64-bit with great effort. Will these applications not be able to run on Informix 14.10 in the future?

The main question is, will 32-bit applications continue to be supported, and if so, for how long?

CURSOR recognized this problem early and pointed out the need for a solution to IBM and HCL.
