IBM Informix Dynamic Server Developer Edition brings legendary online transaction processing (OLTP) database performance, reliability, near hands free administration and new clustering capabilities for Mac OS X solutions. The same functionality and ease of maintenance that IDS customers have loved on Linux, Unix and Windows are now available on Mac OS X. IBM Informix Dynamic Server offers the high performance, low operating cost, scalability and data availability that have been the hallmark of IDS. Solution providers love IDS for the way it can be administered from within an application and appears invisible to the end customer. "Set it and forget it" is the favorite quote of IDS fans worldwide.
The latest high availability features in IDS provide endless ways to configure clusters of servers to scale out for high throughput, high availability, and optimal use of hardware investments. Clusters of servers can be combined to synchronize all transactions instantly - whether multiple servers share the same copy of data in a shared disk environment, or if they synchronize with replicas located anywhere in the world. This means that solutions can fully utilize disaster recovery hardware to scale out for performance. The easy setup and maintenance of IDS also allows for complete flexibility to change as business needs and applications grow.
