Description

IBM Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) V9.30

IBM IDS V9.30 provides the mission-critical availability, reliability, scalability, and data-intensive transaction management capabilities that a growing number of organizations rely on to succeed in e-business. It also provides world-leading extensibility features.

Because business logic can be embedded in the database and fully integrated in IBM Informix Dynamic Scalable Architecture (DSA), IDS V9.30 can solve business problems that few other systems can. It can also provide uniform access to client information — regardless of where it resides — through leading distributed database and virtual table capabilities, thereby allowing queries to encompass a wide range of databases, from flat files to other IDS and non-IDS databases.

IDS V9.30 is available in three configuration options:

  • Workgroup Edition V9.30 — Ideal for small to medium-size businesses and departmental solutions that require the power of an enterprise database.
  • Enterprise Edition V9.30 — Provides all of the features of IDS Workgroup Edition plus features that take advantage of today's large-scale symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) systems. License is based on number of concurrent sessions.
  • Enterprise Edition Unlimited V9.30 — Same features as IDS Enterprise Edition except license is processor-based.

IDS V9.30 includes the following core products:

  • Blade Manager — Allows the user to install, register, uninstall, and unregister DataBlade modules.
  • IBM Informix Connect — A runtime connectivity product that includes the runtime libraries of the IBM Informix application programming interfaces that comprise the IBM Informix Client Software Development Kit (CSDK) product. These libraries are required by applications running on client machines to access Informix servers. Informix Connect is needed when finished applications are ready to be deployed.
  • IBM Informix DataBlade Development Kit (DBDK) — Provides an easy-to-use graphical development environment for creating new data types and routines, as well as manages the packaging, installation, and registration of completed DataBlade modules. While DBDK runs only on Microsoft™ Windows®, you can use it to create DataBlade modules for both Windows and UNIX® operating systems using C, Java™, and Informix Stored Procedure Language (SPL).
  • IBM Informix Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) — The JavaSoft specification of a standard API that allows Java programs to access database management systems. The JDBC API consists of a set of interfaces and classes written in the Java programming language.
  • IBM Informix Server Administrator — A browser-based, cross-platform database server administration tool. It provides an easy-to-use interface for the IDS command line, thus eliminating the need to memorize commands and options.
  • Server Studio JE by AGS — Serves as a foundation for the integration of database development, operational administration, diagnostic, and recovery into a single, seamless application that works across the entire family of IBM Informix database servers. Featuring an intuitive, easy-to-use GUI, Server Studio sets a new standard for productivity in development, debugging, analysis, optimization, deployment, and administration of database applications.

The selected IBM Informix products are available through IBM's Passport Advantage offering. The charge structure (level of use) of a given program is specified by one or more of the following:

  • Server — "Server" means a server on which the program is installed or executed.
  • Processor — "Processor" means a processor that forms part of the server on which the program is installed or executed. You must acquire a use authorization for each such Processor.
  • Concurrent Session — A Concurrent Session, at a given point in time, is each logical connection existing at that time between the Program and an end-user interface device. Each such existing connection is counted as a Concurrent Session whether or not it is actually in use. If an individual end user establishes multiple connections, each one is counted as a separate Concurrent Session, even if they share a common physical pathway. The number of connections is not reduced by any program or machine, such as a front-end server or multiplexer, which may be used to concentrate the connections. Each batch process being executed at the same time is also considered to be a Concurrent Session.
  • Registered User — A Registered User of a program is a specific individual authorized by you to use the program. Such an individual is a Registered User whether or not they are actually using the program.

IBM Informix products are available through IBM's Passport Advantage offering. The software license for these products includes Software Maintenance.

Software Maintenance, previously available separately as Software Subscription and Technical Support, is the most effective way for you to ensure that your users have the latest technology at their fingertips and maintain the highest levels of productivity. With Software Maintenance, your IS technical staff has continual access to IBM software technical support centers as needed.

Software Maintenance is the most effective strategy for staying up to date and assuring technical support coverage is available whenever you need it. It provides you with access to new versions and releases of the product and allows for cross-platform migration at no extra cost during the coverage period.

In addition to software upgrades, an integral part of Software Maintenance is technical support designed to meet the support requirements of a customer running multiple IBM products in a complex environment. The support is not intended as an end-user support offering, but is designed to supplement your support staff by providing telephone and electronic cross-platform support for routine, short duration installation, as well as usage (how-to) questions, and code-related problems.

Software Maintenance is automatically included with the license until the first or second anniversary date of your Passport Advantage contract, dependent on the anniversary coverage you selected with your initial acquisition.

For additional information, including the latest changes to the IBM Passport Advantage offering, visit the IBM Passport Advantage Web site at:

For program defect-related problems, the following procedure for assistance in problem identification is applicable:

  • Contact your remarketer or distributor or, alternatively
  • Mail or fax the written problem description to IBM

IBM will reply in writing with information about correction, bypass, or restriction with the intent to make the program perform according to its specifications, or, if there are none, to its principles of operation.

Customer information needed when submitting a problem:

  • Address and contact name
  • Current maintenance/Corrective Service Diskette (CSD) level
  • Problem description (typed, not hand written)

Additional information on customer reported problems can be obtained from your remarketer/distributor or IBM.

Money-Back Guarantee: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program, return it within 30 days from the invoice date, to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it, for a refund. This applies only to your first acquisition of the program.

Copy and Use on Home/Portable Computer: No

Volume Orders (IVO): No

Passport Advantage Applies: Yes and through the Passport Advantage Web site at:

Usage Restriction: Yes. The selected IBM Informix products are available through IBM's Passport Advantage offering. The charge structure (level of use) of a given Program is specified by one of the following:

  • Server — "Server" means a server on which the program is installed or executed.
  • Processor — "Processor" means a processor that forms part of the server on which the program is installed or executed. You must acquire a use authorization for each such Processor.
  • Concurrent Session — A Concurrent Session, at a given point in time, is each logical connection existing at that time between the Program and an end-user interface device. Each such existing connection is counted as a Concurrent Session whether or not it is actually in use. If an individual end user establishes multiple connections, each one is counted as a separate Concurrent Session, even if they share a common physical pathway. The number of connections is not reduced by any program or machine, such as a front-end server or multiplexer, which may be used to concentrate the connections. Each batch process being executed at the same time is also considered to be a Concurrent Session.
  • Registered User — A Registered User of a program is a specific individual authorized by you to use the program. Such an individual is a Registered User whether or not they are actually using the program.

IBM Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) V9.30

For the IDS Workgroup Edition, you must acquire use authorizations for both Servers and Concurrent Sessions. Note that each Server use authorization includes one Concurrent Session use authorization. If, for example, you require a Server and ten Concurrent Sessions, you should acquire one Server use authorization and nine Concurrent Session use authorizations.

The following restrictions apply only to the IDS Workgroup Edition:

  • Server Limitation — You may not install or use the Program on a Server that has more than two processors.
  • Function Limitations — You may not use the following Program functions: parallel data query, data partitioning, parallel backup, parallel restore, parallel load, parallel unload, optical disks, Enterprise Replication (ER), High-availability Data Replication (HDR), VLM (ability to access more than two GB of RAM).

IBM Informix Workgroup DataBlade Bundle V1.00

Component Programs

The IBM Informix Workgroup DataBlade Bundle contains the following programs:

  • IBM Informix Web DataBlade V4.13
  • IBM Informix Excalibur Text Search DataBlade V1.30
  • IBM Informix Data Director for Web V2.00

You must acquire use authorizations for both Servers and Concurrent Sessions. Note that each Server use authorization includes one Concurrent Session use authorization. For example, if you require a Server and ten Concurrent Sessions, you should acquire one Server use authorization and nine Concurrent Session use authorizations. Also, each Server use authorization includes authorization to use the IBM Informix Data Director for Web on an additional machine running Windows.

Use of any component program is use of the IBM Informix Workgroup DataBlade Bundle. For example, if you use IBM Informix Web DataBlade on one server and IBM Informix Excaliber Text Search DataBlade on another, two Server use authorizations for the IBM Informix Workgroup DataBlade Bundle are required. The number of Concurrent Session authorizations required for IBM Informix Workgroup DataBlade Bundle is the sum of the numbers of Concurrent Sessions for the three component Programs. Processor and Registered User levels of use do not apply to the component Programs.

Multi-Product Runtime Programs

The following Programs may only be used for production:

  • IBM Informix Connect Runtime Program
  • IBM Informix ESQL/C Runtime Program

Software Maintenance Applies: Yes

Software Maintenance, previously referred to as Subscription and Technical Support, is now included in the Passport Advantage Agreement. Installation and technical support for the products announced in this letter is provided by the Software Maintenance offering of the IBM IPLA. This fee service enhances customer productivity by providing voice and/or electronic access into the IBM support organizations.

IBM includes Software Maintenance with each program acquired during the coverage period. The coverage period means the period commencing on the date you acquire the program up to the first or second anniversary date, depending on whether you acquired coverage for one or two anniversaries. The coverage period for Software Maintenance acquired in the two months preceding an anniversary date will be extended to the next applicable anniversary date.

While your Software Maintenance is in effect, IBM provides you assistance for your (1) routine, short duration installation and usage (how-to) questions; and (2) code-related questions. IBM provides assistance via telephone and, if available, electronic access, only to your information systems (IS) technical support personnel during the normal business hours (published prime shift hours) of your IBM support center. (This assistance is not available to your end users.) IBM provides Severity 1 assistance 24 hours a day, every day of the year. For additional details, consult your IBM Software Support Guide at:

Software Maintenance does not include assistance for (1) the design and development of applications, (2) your use of programs in other than their specified operating environment or (3) failures caused by products for which IBM is not responsible under this agreement.
