Over 20000 Open Beta Downloads, over 400 of these were business partners and ISVs The International Informix User Group (IIUG) membership has increased by 2.3 times since Informix was acquired by IBM in 2001. Over 40 cities have had IDS 11 Launch Infobahns and Technical Workshops In 2006 and 2007, IDS has experienced double-digit new license revenue growth, well above the 6-7% for the database market Slide6:  IBM Uncages IDS 11, Aka Cheetah, Database By Barbara Darrow June 12, 2007 The database, which IBM calls the second major release in two years, was optimized to run well on distributed commodity blade servers. IDS 11 will enable continuous availability in blade-based multi-node server environments and will provide workload balancing across those servers, said Bernie Spang, IBM's director of marketing for data servers. This release should signal Informix partners that IBM is serious about continuing to build on the Informix database technology it acquired six years ago, Spang said. IBM Unveils Next Generation Informix Dynamic Server 06/12/2007 The new IDS 11 is tuned to deliver a combination of increased performance, reliability and scalability, along with the ability to handle massive volumes of complex data at very high speeds – essential capabilities in today’s demanding, time-sensitive information management environments. IBM Unveils Informix Upgrade By Doug Henschen IBM today announced Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) 11, an upgrade of Big Blue's database aimed at exceptionally fast OLTP performance and reliability in massive-data-volume environments such as retail, telecommunications, government and banking. The upgrade, which is set for worldwide availability July 6, enhances the data server's availability and disaster recovery capabilities while also driving toward "administration free" operation. …. Press reports on the next generation of Informix June 12, 2007 (Computerworld) - "Sure enough, IBM discovered that Informix's installed base was not for moving," wrote Wayne Kernochan, an analyst at Nashua, N.H.-based Illuminata Inc., in a recent blog post (username and password required). "Moreover, IBM discovered that Informix had a lot of attractive features, many of which it has been busy incorporating in DB2." …. The latest version of IDS, code-named Cheetah, includes enhancements to Informix's speedy transaction processing, as well as what IBM calls "mainframe-like" high-availability and clustering features. Slide7:  IBM's 'Cheetah' Ready to Pounce June 12, 2007 - IBM released on Tuesday the Informix Dynamic Server 11, a new data server company officials expect to give them a leg up in the global database market. IDS 11, code-named "Cheetah," offers significant cost savings with support for cluster tools and, through a feature code-named "Mach 11," provides failover recovery from any node to ensure continuous business operations. In addition, IDS 11 offers cell-, column- and row-level LBAC (label-based access control) in the name of security. LBAC allows users to define security hierarchies and classification levels and then apply these definitions to the information being managed. The new labeling capability provides new ways to control access to sensitive data stored within the database. June 12, 2007 Database Trends: Q&A with Gartner's Donald Feinberg By Doug Henschen IBM has been making database news of late, introducing an upgrade of the Informix Database Server and announcing a major deal with the City of Los Angeles. IBM says the city is moving from Oracle to IBM's DB2 9 in order to "lower the costs of running the city's geographic information system (GIS)." Oracle declined to comment on the deal or IBM's claim that its DB business is "soaring." To get an independent assessment of the DB market, we called on analyst Donald Feinberg of Gartner for his take on the latest trends and technical advances and the upcoming Oracle 11g release, set for July. You don't hear much about Informix. What's significant about the upgrade IBM announced today? IBM's critics have been saying that the company has been ignoring Informix. That's simply not true. The new release has many enhancements, many coming directly from user-group requests. With IDS 11, they have sent a message to IDS users that they are serious about the DBMS and that it's part of IBM's overall DBMS strategy. IBM Unleashes 'Cheetah' Database June 13, 2007 ( Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge) IBM on Tuesday unveiled a database offering that the company says will bring mainframe-like reliability to small and midsize businesses while delivering advanced features to large enterprises that require high-speed transaction processing. The company said its Informix Data Server 11, code-named "Cheetah," offers hands-free administration despite a range of advanced features such as the ability to pull data from geographically dispersed server clusters. IDS 11 also allows users to conduct text searches of unstructured information across multiple data sources. …. IDS 11, formerly code-named ‘Cheetah,’ sprints its way into the news Slide8:  No Data Can Outrun This 'Cheetah' June 12, 2007 By Clint Boulton Informix isn't ready to retire. IBM said today it has refreshed its Informix Dynamic Server (IDS), adding continuous availability and disaster-recovery features to its online transaction-processing (OLTP) database. IDS 11, code-named Cheetah, handles massive amounts of data at very high speeds and with little maintenance. This means that even small businesses with tiny or no IT staffs, but with multiple data-server locations, can process transactions. To boost this iteration, IBM took continuous data-availability and disaster-recovery technology from its mainframe machines to help customers better manage their server clusters regardless of the distance between backup datacenters. IBM: Informix database still alive and kicking IBM promises “mainframe-like” continuous availability in Informix database upgrade. By Jon Brodkin, Network World, 06/12/07 IBM Tuesday released an upgraded version of its Informix database server, promising to give global data centers “mainframe-like continuous availability and disaster recovery capabilities.” Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) 11, which had been released in a public beta program earlier this year under the code name “Cheetah,” borrows technology from IBM mainframe systems to enhance information management for cluster server environments. IBM says in a press release that this feature allows continuous data availability and disaster recovery “regardless of the geographic location or distance between backup data center sites.” General availability begins July 6. Press reports the uncaging of IDS 11, formerly called ‘Cheetah’ IBM changes spots with Informix ‘Cheetah’ database IDS 11 gives new lease of life to veteran product Martin Veitch, IT Week, 14 Jun 2007 IBM will next month reward loyalists to the veteran Informix database by releasing the first major upgrade of the product for over two years.  Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) 11, codenamed Cheetah, is touted as bringing high-availability and disaster recovery capabilities through clustering routines adopted from mainframe technology. IDS 11 also leans on DB2 technology with Advanced Access Control, which lets DBAs lock down cells, columns and rows for flexible security hierarchies. Monitoring has also been polished with a SQL-based Admin API for admin tasks, and a query scheduler for automated reporting. XML and web services support is also extended. IDS 11 Launch Web Site :  IDS 11 Launch Web Site “… we are impressed with the new capabilities that IDS will offer…." -- Markus Holzbauer, senior database administrator for ProSiebenSat.1 Produktion "… our major focus was the non-blocking checkpoints in "Cheetah" which will bring our customers additional performance boost..
