The Programs listed below are licensed under the following License Information terms and conditions in addition to the Program license terms previously agreed to by Client and IBM. If Client does not have previously agreed to license terms in effect for the Program, the International Program License Agreement (Z125-3301-14) applies.

Program Name (Program Number):
IBM Informix Express Edition V12.10.xC15 (5724-Z04)

The following standard terms apply to Licensee's use of the Program.

Limited use right

With the exception of Bundled Programs, all IBM software provided to Licensee with the Program can only be used to support Licensee's use of the Principal Program under this License Information document, which means such use must be directly related to a licensed use of the Principal Program.

Licensee is not authorized to use the Program to provide commercial IT services to any third party, to provide commercial hosting or timesharing, or to sublicense, rent, or lease the Program.

Prohibited Uses

Licensee may not use or authorize others to use the Program if failure of the Program could lead to death, bodily injury, or property or environmental damage.

Supporting Programs

Licensee is authorized to install and use the Supporting Programs identified below only to support Licensee's use of the Principal Program under this Agreement. The phrase "to support Licensee's use" would only include those uses that are necessary or otherwise directly related to a licensed use of the Principal Program or another Supporting Program. The Supporting Programs may not be used for any other purpose. A Supporting Program may be accompanied by license terms, and those terms, if any, apply to Licensee's use of that Supporting Program. In the event of conflict, the terms in this License Information document supersede the Supporting Program's terms. Licensee must obtain sufficient entitlements to the Program, as a whole, to cover Licensee's installation and use of all of the Supporting Programs, unless separate entitlements are provided within this License Information document. For example, if this Program were licensed on a VPC (Virtual Processor Core) basis and Licensee were to install the Principal Program or a Supporting Program on a 10 VPC machine and another Supporting Program on a second 10 VPC machine, Licensee would be required to obtain 20 VPC entitlements to the Program.

Supporting Programs:
IBM Informix Client SDK V4.10
IBM Informix JDBC/Embedded SQL Driver V4.10
IBM Informix TimeSeries Plug-in for Optim Data Studio V3.11
IBM Data Studio Client V4.1
IBM Data Server Client V10.1.2

Prohibited Components

Licensee is not authorized to use any of the following components or functions of the Program:
Parallel Operations (DDL/DML/BAR)
Distributed Operations
Private Memory Cache for VP
High Performance Loader
Storage Optimization Feature (Compression)

Components Not Used for Establishing Required Entitlements

Licensee may install and use the following Program components, under the license terms, but these components are not used to determine the number of entitlements required for the Program.
IBM Informix Connect Runtime
IBM Informix JDBC Driver/Embedded SQL
IBM Informix ESQL/C Runtime
IBM Informix Client SDK (CSDK)

The following units of measure may apply to Licensee's use of the Program.

Authorized User Single Install

Authorized User Single Install is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the Program. An Install is an installed copy of the Program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. The Program may be installed on any number of computers or servers, but if the Authorized User has accessed or has access to more than one Install of the Program, the Authorized User requires a separate entitlement for each such Install. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User given access to the Program on each Install in any manner directly or indirectly (for example: via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the Program or that is otherwise managed by the Program is considered a separate User of the Program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

Limited Use Virtual Server

Limited Use Virtual Server is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. A server is a physical computer that is comprised of processing units, memory, and input/output capabilities and that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications for one or more users or client devices. Where racks, blade enclosures, or other similar equipment is being employed, each separable physical device (for example, a blade or a rack-mounted device) that has the required components is considered itself a separate server. A virtual server is either a virtual computer created by partitioning the resources available to a physical server that complies with the requirements of the Sub-capacity Guide found at ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/software/smb/pdfs/SubcapacityGuide.pdf or the unpartitioned physical server. If Licensee's virtualization environment does not comply with the requirements of the Sub-capacity Guide, the entire physical server must meet all requirements in this license. Licensee must obtain Limited Use Virtual Server entitlements for each virtual server made available to the Program. A processor core is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes program instructions, and consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic units. The total number of processor cores in any virtual server made available to the Program cannot exceed 4.

Managed Device

Managed Device is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. A Device is a physical or virtual component that is managed by the Program. Sufficient entitlements must be obtained to cover all Devices managed by the Program.

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which the Program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the Processor Value Unit (PVU) licensing for Distributed Software website at https://supportcontent.ibm.com/support/pages/ibm-processor-value-unit-pvu-licensing-distributed-software) and the number of processors made available to the Program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores.

Licensee can deploy the Program (if supported) using full capacity licensing, sub-capacity licensing (https://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage/subcaplicensing.html), or container licensing (https://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage/containerlicenses.html). See the linked websites for more information.

In addition to the entitlements required for the Program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this Program sufficient to cover the processor cores for the systems on which the resources managed or processed by the Program reside.

In addition to the above, the following terms apply to Licensee's use of the Program.

1) Usage Restrictions

1.1) Install Limitation

The total amount of resources allocated to a given Informix Install, including all database instances managed by the Install, cannot exceed:

1.1.1) Processor Limit

The Program allows a maximum of four (4) Informix CPU Virtual Processors (as reflected in the NUMCPUVPS tunable parameter of the Program) per Install.

1.1.2) Memory Allocation Limit

The program allows a total of eight (8) Gigabytes of memory allocated (as reflected in the SHMTOTAL tunable parameters of the Program instances) to support use of all instances of the Program on a single Install, regardless of the amount of physical memory in the server.

1.2) Licensee may only use the Program up to a total of one (1) secondary Install node, using any one (1) of the following: High-availability Data Replication (HDR), Remote Secondary Server (RSS) or Shared Disk Secondary (SDS).

1.3) Licensee may only use Enterprise Replication (ER) up to a maximum of two (2) nodes per Install.
