Informix Dynamic Server V10:
Superior Data Replication for
Availability and Distribution
High availability to
reduce or eliminate
costly downtime
Enterprise
replication for fast
data distribution
Reduced deployment
and management
costs
This book provides an overview of the high availability and
enterprise replication features of Informix Dynamic Server
(IDS) Version 10, which can simplify and automate enterprise
database deployment. Version 10 offers patent-pending
technology that virtually eliminates downtime and automates
many of the tasks associated with deploying mission-critical
enterprise systems. The high availability capability can
reduce or eliminate costly downtime through, as examples,
the introduction of online index rebuild, the capability to
create and drop indexes online without locking tables, and
point-in-time table-level restore. Enhanced enterprise
replication provides solutions for those customers requiring
reliable and quick dissemination of data across a global
organization. The replicated data can also participate in the
high availability environment with capabilities such as
seamless online resynchronization of enterprise replication
nodes at startup, for example. There is also enhanced
capability for high-availability disaster recovery customers in
the form of the ability to resend primary server indexes to
HDR secondary servers without requiring a rebuild of the
index on the primary server. These significant and powerful
capabilities can enable you to intelligently replicate
(distribute) your enterprise data to improve the availability of
that data to better service the requirements of your
enterprise.
