Here are some details for an IBM Proof of Technology in Chicago taking place this week, hosted by the Chicago Area Informix User Group. Carlton Doe will be running a MACH-11 lab to help get people up to speed with the latest IDS 11.50 High Availability technology...
In this Proof of Technology, you will create and use the full spectrum of MACH-11 technologies in IDS 11.5 including Updatable Secondaries, the Online Connection Manager and Server Monitor agent, Service Level Agreements and the Failover Arbitrator to create a cluster of instances that can provide virtually uninterrupted data services within a business environment.
This Proof of Technology is specifically targeted for Application and Data Architects, Database and Informix Dynamic Server Administrators as well as Line-of Business owners who are evaluating architectural and data server solutions for their environments. It is also of great value to ISV’s, IBM Business Partners and others who are looking for the best data server to integrate into their solution for resale to others. Some prerequisite knowledge of IBM Informix Dynamic Server is very helpful but not required. It is recommended that participants have an understanding of data server technology, data server administration as well as general data programming. The labs will be executed in a Linux® environment so a basic fluency in Linux/Unix commands, including the vi editor is helpful. This PoT is being delivered for the Chicago Area Informix Users Group or CHIUG, however, all are welcome to attend.
The class will include an educational presentation briefly covering current IDS replication technology. Then the new technology will be introduced and explained in detail. This will be followed by an in-depth hands-on experience where the student will apply and use all the concepts taught during the educational portion of the day. By the end of the day, the student will have created and used the full spectrum of MACH-11 technologies in IDS 11.5 to create a cluster of instances that can provide virtually uninterrupted data services within a business environment.
This session is offered free of charge. Complimentary refreshments including continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. However, participants are responsible for their own business travel expenses.
This Proof of Technology will be presented for the Chicago Area Informix Users Group on Thursday March 19th at IBM’s Chicago TechnicalCenter (or TEC). The Chicago TEC is located on the 6th floor of the Hyatt Center at 71 South Wacker Drive. For your convenience, registrationand continental breakfast will begin at 8:30 AM. The session will start at 9:00 AM and end at approximately 4:30 PM.

IDS 11.5 Continuous Availability Feature (MACH 11)
The Continuous Availability Feature of IDS 11.5 offers easy and seamless deployment of applications on cluster solutions, providing a rich set of options for high availability (HA) with seamless scalability and lower hardware costs. Cluster nodes can be added dynamically, on demand, as workload increases on the cluster with client connections routed dynamically to any node in a cluster. Configuring, managing and adding cluster nodes are simplified with enhancements to the Open Admin Tool (OAT) that was discussed in the August Chat. Our speakers will be Jerry Keesee, Director of the Informix Lab and Madison Pruet, Senior Technical Staff Member and Informix Replication Architect.
