The panther has left its cage !!
The Informix team has announced "Panther" !!
Informix 11.7 server was announced today.
This release continues the tradition of rock-solid database servers from the Informix development team.
The Informix Flexible Grid feature and associated tooling (Open Admin Tool - OAT) provide an extremely flexible environment for scaling a reliable cluster of database servers. You can even have different server platforms (Windows and Linux for example) in a single grid.
New index scan technology can improve query performance for those "sometimes nasty" SQL queries. Trusted contexts can be used to improve Informix server performance for application servers such as WebSphere and others.
In this release you can also use the latest Optim Development Studio tools and the IBM Mashup Center.
I wish I was able to attend the Information on Demand (IOD) conference in Las Vegas, but I'll be busy in the classroom teaching computer technology courses instead.
