Bringing Informix Technology to the World’s Fastest Growing Database Market

If someone wanted more proof that Informix is technologically a step ahead of competitors, IBM provided evidence in China! Even the hardest cynic would find it difficult to rebuff the fact that the adoption of a locally innovated version of the Informix database for the burgeoning database market in China is a masterstroke

Why Informix over other competitors?

When one of the fastest growing markets in the world embraces Informix over other open source projects, it merits taking a second look (or maybe more) at what differentiates Informix from the rest of the competitors.

Before I begin extolling the virtues of the Informix database you can find details of the deal that was signed between IBM and GBASE here:  GBASE and IBM to collaborate on locally innovated database in China.

IBM Informix is a high-performance Enterprise Class Database that provides you with competitive advantage with its low cost, no administrative overhead, and powerful innovative features like OLTP and OLAP capabilities. Informix offers high availability in a significantly less complex, less expensive manner compared to competition for both distributed and centralized deployments.

Analysts agree that where database infrastructures must meet the challenges of the future, Informix is an obvious candidate. You can read the comparative analysis here.  IBM Informix – The database for high availability and data replication

The Proof of the pudding is in the eating.

A growing database market like China adopting Informix technology to create their locally innovated database is strong reference for the technological superiority of Informix. While a lot has been said about the superior capabilities of the Informix product, this deal will go a long way in reinforcing Informix as the number one reliable and highest performing database for most applications including the “Internet of Things”.
