IBM Informix Valuable Features

The solution is quite stable and reliable. We use it mainly due to its general stable nature.

There's a lot of flexibility for us to create a DB schema. 

They provide some replication for us - XDR, or something like that.  

So far, we do not have a lot of issues. It's pretty problem-free.

Replication, all levels of replication, query charting, and the MongoDB embedded are the most valuable features of this solution.

It is extremely resilient and cannot be compared to anyone else on the market.

There are many great features within the solution. For myself, from what I have witnessed, there isn't just one valuable feature.

I'm overall quite satisfied with this solution. I have 20 years with Informix. I like everything about it.

The initial setup is pretty easy.

The stability is very, very good.

The scalability of the solution is great.

  • Its high availability characteristic is very stable and easy to configure and administer compared to Oracle to be performed higher than lower costs.
  • I really think it's a robust database tool and an excellent support.

Replication is the most valuable feature and it's relatively easy to use. We can use both SQL and non-SQL connections in the one database. Informix can support huge quantities of data with less memory and less capacity. We don't need to expand capacity to compute a huge quantity of data.
