The proliferation of IoT data has created unique challenges for database management systems, requiring robust processing and integration capabilities, enterprise-class performance and low total cost of ownership.
IBM Informix® database server offers a hybrid database system, powerful functionality and high performance with self-managing capabilities. These features make Informix ideal for multi-tiered architectures that require processing at the device level, at gateway layers, and in the cloud. Key features include:
Support for flexible schema, multiple APIs and configurations
Native processing of JSON, time-series, spatial and relational data
Minimal administrative requirements and memory footprint
"Informix EDGE is one of the only database technologies that doesn’t need to run on a powerful server, and it’s optimized for collecting the kind of time-series data that the connected devices produce.”
