We are using Informix in Brazil for mapping two company emails. We are using it here in Rio De Janeiro and also in Sierra. The main system of Informix in Rio is the commercial system and is very important to the company. The technical system using Informix is in Sierra. However, in Rio, it is now more important as the commercial system is being used by the call center which is using the Informix database.
I have assisted a wide range of customers in strategic and/or critical applications, such as: * Health Care: Informix is at the epicenter of all the biggest private hospital consortia in Belgium, concentrating critical and real-time data. * Laboratories: Informix is the center of several environment control quality software. * Telco: Informix handles the biggest Mobile operator in Southern Europe. * Insurance: Several companies in Europe and India. * Banking: Informix as a central platform for a number of medium-size banks in Europe and Africa. * Real-time industry: Informix manages data for big battery plants in France. * Government: Ministry of Education and Ministry of Justice. Most of these customers were running on Unix based installations, like AIX, Solaris, HPE, and Linux.
We use this solution to build and maintain databases. It is also used for backing up, restoring, and replicating Informix databases.
We develop software that works with Informix.
* I currently administer Informix for different clients. * I have configured the HDR, RSS, SDSS and connection manager options with a cluster with optimal performance nodes. The version of the Informix is 12.10 Enterprise Edition.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
