After a long desert walk without being able to download our favorite free DBMS, IBM Informix Innovator-C xC5 is finally available on IBM download site.
The good news is that Innovator-C is still alive, the bad news is that new restrictions have been added. Such a decision from IBM was expected, because it is hardly
acceptable to make a DBMS for free when you know that this DBMS can stand close to 500 TPC-C users…
Nevertheless, it remains a very handy product for the price and I am still convinced you have a lot for the price.Ferrari for free cannot last forever 🙁
I’ll try to calibrate it again after this summer.
