IDS 11 Launch - Press Feedback

IDS 11 Launch - Press Feedback

There has been a lot of publicity in form of press articles around the IDS 11 launch. I've read thru all of them and sometimes wondered if the people writing those articles really understand what they are writing about and how IBM positions IDS. Even analysts like Wayne Kernochan, Illuminata demonstrate that they don't seem to have a serious knowledge about the superior Informix technology and the objectives of IBM.

IDS beats Oracle once again

IDS beats Oracle once again

BellMicro UK did an interesting testing/comparision of IDS 10 (Workgroup Edition) versus Oracle 10g (Standard Edition). The results show clearly that IDS 10 is much more hardware gentle then Oracle 10g, scales better and requires much less administration costs.

IDS 11.1- Certification Tutorial III

IDS 11.1 - Certification Tutorial III

The third IDS 11.1 certification tutorial called IDS System Activity Monitoring has been published.


Excerpt:
IDS is a large and complicated product. It can sometimes be mystifying wondering about where to start when looking how to diagnose a problem.
This tutorial is designed to introduce you to a variety of monitoring tools that are available with IDS 11 and to show you how each are used. In this tutorial, you will learn about:
  • The sysmaster database

Cheetah - DIRECT_IO

Cheetah - DIRECT_IO

Informix fellow Fernande Nunes from Portugal published the next Cheetah article about the new DIRECT_IO configuration parameter.

Cheetah spot by spot: DIRECT_IO

DIRECT_IO might be an interesting alternative to the usage of raw devices for certain types of IDS installations. However based on my experience I would still prefer raw devices as they give you a strict isolation from data stored in the filesystems and also KAIO is always supported, not dependent on the filesystem type or page size.
