Time to Migrate: IDS V7 to IDS V11
There hasn't been a better time to upgrade old IDS V7 installations to IDS V11. IDS V11 comes with a whole bunch of new functionality, enhancements and "under the hood" improvements that will certainly boost your transaction throughput as well as increase the availability of your data.
The commitment of IBM to IDS is serious and rock solid, no doubt about that. The german "IBM Informix Infobahn" event, having been held this week in three different locations (Munich, Frankfurt, Hamburg), demonstrated that IDS is an absolutely strategic data server for IBM. IBM invests a bulk of development resources to make IDS the absolutely first class data server for extreme OLTP and continuous availability.

MACH 11 - Setup a SDS Node in 5 Minutes
If you didn't had the time to play with the SDS (Shared Disk Secondary) functionality which is part of the MACH 11 technology introduced in IDS 11, here is a short summary how to setup a SDS node on the same machine. It will take you only about 5 minutes to get the SDS node up and running.
I assume that you already have an IDS 11 instance running on your machine. If not, download the cost-free IDS Developer Edition:
Daily Backup via DB Scheduler
Applications that embed the database as part of their solution have challenging requirements regarding the data server:
- a customizable, small footprint
- a hardware gentle architecture
- rock-solid reliability
- flexible high availability options
- extremely low administration overhead
- smoothly backward application compatibility
- excellent performance
If you look at each of those requirements it becomes clear why IBM favors IDS as the data server of choice for integrated solutions. The new database scheduler introduced in IDS V11 offers extensive possibilities to automate routine tasks. Probably one of the most important DBA routine tasks is the regular backup of the data server.
