IBM Informix is a secure embeddable database, optimized for OLTP and Internet of Things (IoT) data. Informix has the unique ability to seamlessly integrate SQL, NoSQL/JSON, time series and spatial data. With four available editions, everyone from developers to global enterprises can benefit from its reliability, flexibility, ease of use and low total cost of ownership. The single Informix platform helps you power transactional workloads to enable analytics-driven insights at the speed of business. To support mission-critical environments, IBM Informix includes High Availability Data Replication (HADR), Remote Secondary Standby Database Servers and Shared Disk Secondary Server. The Flexible Grid feature also enables rolling upgrades without any outages. Informix offers easy deployment features like “smart triggers” that implement event-driven processing and database push notifications, without any schema changes. This allows users to automate data management and focus on core business. With a silent installation and small footprint that requires just 100 Mb of memory, Informix is simple and non-disruptive. Self-managing capabilities make it ideal as an embedded data management solution. Informix can be up and running in minutes, not days. Server version upgrades can be applied to a cluster of servers while permitting users to connect to the database and continuously access their data with no downtime. Servers and client connections can be configured to guarantee that no transactions are lost, even if the primary server or its host goes offline. This combination of features ensures that Informix is always on and always available. Its ability to integrate time series data with relational data make it ideal for monitoring and for the analytical processing of time oriented data such as utility supply, weather tracking, logistics and warehouse management.
