Following its formative years as an increasingly reliable operating system for lower-end computing, Microsoft's Windows NT has matured into a stable and very cost-effective choice for a growing number of business-critical applications. With Microsoft adding high-availability features and options, Windows NT is rapidly becoming a logical mid- to upper-range addition to existing IS networks. Informix was among the first to recognize the growing importance of Windows NT to the database community. The company introduced its first database server for Windows NT more than a year ago, and Informix now offers a comprehensive set of NT-optimized servers supported by a growing selection of specialized tools, utilities and support.

A classic case for an organization adopting Informix database servers for Windows NT is that this solution supports more convenient and cost-efficient application development. A senior developer heading out on a week-long business trip, for example, can now load Informix on a Windows NT notebook and complete an entire application while on the road. Informix for Windows NT has the same look and feel of Informix running on a UNIX machine, but with the added convenience and portability of a notebook deployment.
