IBM Informix

Report Author(s): Philip Howard


IBM Informix is an object-relational database with native support for both time-series and geospatial data.

The product is positioned as a database for Internet of Things (IoT) environments and highly distributed applications. It has a small enough footprint (it will run on a Raspberry Pi Zero, though preferably a Pi2 or later), together with fire-andforget functionality, to make it practical to deploy at the edge. Conversely, it is equally capable of running in mainframe environments. The product is also suitable for – and there are clients using it for – environments where the emphasis is on monitoring and metrics rather than analytics.
