The Programs listed below are licensed under the following terms and conditions in addition to those of the IBM International Program License Agreement (IBM form number Z125-3301-14).
Program Name: IBM Informix Express Edition V12.10
Program Number: 5724-Z04
Program's specifications can be found in the collective Description and Technical Information sections of the Program's Announcement Letters.
The Program is licensed as a multi-product package and includes the Supporting Programs identified below. Licensee is authorized to install and use such Supporting Programs only to support Licensee's use of the Principal Program under this Agreement and within the limits of the Proofs of Entitlement for the Program (unless broader rights are provided elsewhere in this License Information document). The phrase "to support Licensee's use" would include only 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. Licensee is not authorized to transfer or remarket the Supporting Programs separate from the Principal Program. 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. When Licensee's right to use the Program expires or terminates, Licensee must discontinue use, destroy or promptly return all copies of the Supporting Programs to the party from whom Licensee acquired the Program. If Licensee downloaded the Supporting Programs, Licensee should contact the party from whom Licensee acquired the Program. If Licensee wishes to license the Supporting Programs for any use beyond the limits set forth above, please contact an IBM Sales Representative or the party from whom Licensee acquired the Program to obtain the appropriate license.
The following are Supporting Programs licensed with the Program:
IBM Informix Client SDK V4.10

Notwithstanding any provision in the Agreement, Licensee is not authorized to use any of the following components or functions of the Program:
Parallel Operations (DDL/DML/BAR)
Private Memory Cache for VP
High Performance Loader
Storage Optimization Feature (Compression)
Components Not Used for Establishing Required Entitlements
When determining the number of entitlements required for Licensee's installation or use of the Program, the installation or use of the following Program components are not taken into consideration. In other words, 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)
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.
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 PVU Table by Processor Vendor, Brand, Type and Model Number at http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html) 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 using either Full Capacity licensing or Virtualization Capacity (Sub-Capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (see webpage below). If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the Program, except for those servers from which the Program has been permanently removed. If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the Program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html.
* An Activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.
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.
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. The total number of processor cores in any virtual server made available to the Program cannot exceed 4. 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.
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). The Secondary Install node may perform both read and write queries and operations.
1.3 Licensee may only use Enterprise Replication (ER) up to a maximum of two (2) nodes per Install.
