April 29, 2008 - IBM unveils a new version of its Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) software designed to help companies better manage and utilize the deluge of data generated from global operations while increasing effectiveness and reducing data management costs by one-third.


The new IDS 11.5, code-named "Cheetah 2," is designed to enable customers to enhance business performance on cluster server environments using information management techniques inspired by IBM's mainframe systems. As a result, IDS is a non-mainframe data server that provides clustered data centers with continuous data availability and disaster recovery.


"Global businesses of all sizes and across all industries are looking to gain a competitive advantage from the ability to execute uninterrupted business transactions locally and across their global enterprise," said Inhi Cho, vice president, IBM Data Management Marketing. "The new version of IDS delivers the speed, agility and efficiency to help our clients enhance their overall business performance and reduce costs as their companies grow."


IDS 11.5 features numerous enhancements that further its reliability and transaction performance. By enabling customers to manage the same amount of data with fewer hardware servers, IDS 11.5 requires fewer software licenses, lowers administration costs and delivers energy and space savings.


When multiplied across the hundreds or thousands of applications or systems distributed throughout a business, IDS 11.5 offers savings and lowers the cost for massively distributed data management, according to IBM.
