New in Informix V11.70

New Informix grid capabilities take scalability, flexibility, resource utilization and workload management to new levels:

  • Heterogeneous flexibility leverages existing resource investments and enables scaling beyond a single cluster: Different Informix clusters can be brought together enabling applications to see an entire cluster as a single node. Workloads can be managed and spread across different nodes within this heterogeneous environment. Administrators can dynamically add or drop Informix server nodes to meet changing workload requirements.
  • Highly simplified management and administration with rolling upgrades: Nodes can be setup with a single click using OpenAdmin Tool or by a single command from the command line interface. Administrators have the flexibility to automatically replicate just schema changes or schema as well as data changes. The management can be performed at any node within this environment. The Informix Connection Manger in Informix V11.70 facilitates easy rolling upgrades.
  • Massive, linear scalability: Administrators can now utilize resources spread across geographies to serve as nodes for linear scaling of application requirements.
  • Seamless, transactional continuity during failover: With transactional survival capabilities, within an Informix grid, transactions can continue to run on an established Informix secondary server when a primary server fails.

Best-of-breed embeddability that gets more autonomous

  • More autonomy for even less human and programmatic intervention: Informix V11.70
    • Automated storage allocation for extending space when pre-determined thresholds are met , contributing to added self-maintenance
    • Built-in support and automatic registration of extensions and advanced data types contributing to added self-configuration
    • Standardization of alarm and error codes for application exception handling as well as automated scheduler tasks for CPU allocation, time-outs and error notifications
  • Simplified Installation: Informix V11.70 introduces a platform independent installation process with a standardized approach.

Enhanced warehouse infrastructure that optimizes performance and lowers costs

  • Better performance with faster query response times:
    • Star join optimization that improves query execution speed
    • Support for multi-index scans and push down hash joins
  • Simplified management of growing warehouse needs
    • Automatic lookup of tables and addition of table fragments as tables grow
    • Automatic interval fragmentation of time-cyclic data using interval and list strategies
    • Statistics by fragment level

Enhanced security management that can help improve efficiency in support of compliance and data protection efforts

  • Higher granularity with auditing: With selective row-level auditing, customers can now choose which tables and operations they wish to audit and track.
  • Enhanced authentication simplifies user administration
    • Informix V11.70 offers centralized user administration that logically separates Informix user names from operating system users on which the Informix server is running.
    • Informix V11.70 introduces Trusted Context feature that allows middle tier applications to specify trusted users providing the ability to reuse connections between users after authentication.
    • Informix V11.70 provides the capability to protect data at rest with Encryption Expert feature that encrypts Informix data on disk.

Charge metrics definitions

Install

Install is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Install is an installed copy of the program on a physical or virtual disk made available to be executed on a computer. Licensee must obtain an entitlement for each Install of the program.

Processor Value Unit

Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. The number of PVU entitlements required is based on the processor technology (defined within the PVU Table by Processor Value, Brand, Type and Model Number at http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/pvu_licensing_for_customers.html) and the number of processors made available to the program. IBM continues to define a processor, for the purpose of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. A dual-core processor chip, for example, has two processor cores

Licensee can deploy the program using either Full Capacity licensing or Virtualization Capacity (Sub-Capacity) licensing according to the Passport Advantage Sub-Capacity Licensing Terms (see webpage below). If using Full Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores* in the physical hardware environment made available to or managed by the program, except for those servers from which the program has been permanently removed. If using Virtualization Capacity licensing, Licensee must obtain entitlements sufficient to cover all activated processor cores made available to or managed by the program, as defined according to the Virtualization Capacity License Counting Rules at http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/passportadvantage/Counting_Software_licenses_using_specific_virtualization_technologies.html

* An Activated processor core is a processor core that is available for use in a physical or virtual server, regardless of whether the capacity of the processor core can be or is limited through virtualization technologies, operating system commands, BIOS settings, or similar restrictions.

Notes

Some programs may require licenses for the program AND what is being managed. In that case, the following applies: In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.

Some programs may be licensed on a managed basis ONLY. In that case, the following applies: Instead of the entitlements required for the program directly, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.

A few programs on an exception basis may be licensed on a referenced basis. In that case, the following applies: Rather than obtaining entitlements for the activated processor cores available to the program, Licensee must obtain PVU entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the environment made available to the Referenced program as if the program itself were executing everywhere the Referenced program was executing, independent of the basis on which the Referenced program is licensed.

Express and Workgroup programs may be licensed with maximum use terms. In that case, the following applies: The maximum authorized use terms and conditions for PVU licensed IBM Express and Middleware programs can be found in the IBM Express and Middleware Licensing Guide.

Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult the IBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product version or release will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates (modifications or fixes), releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

For clarification, note that if for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

  • For clarification, note that for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program.
  • For clarification, note that for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off CoD software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
