IBM to offer Linux Informix server

Antony Savvas

IBM is teaming up with AMD and Novell to create an integrated SME Linux server offering built around IBM’s next generation Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) data server, codenamed Cheetah.

IBM said the solution would provide new availability and security features in a low cost offering to help small and medium-sized businesses meet their critical needs.

IBM said Cheetah has now entered open beta testing for customers and business partners.

The new Linux offering will combine IDS Cheetah, SuSE Linux Enterprise Server from Novell and IBM xSeries 3105 scalable servers powered by AMD Opteron 1000 Series processors.

Scheduled for release later this year, IDS Cheetah is designed to offer new capabilities to help customers extract more value from their business information. 

Cheetah will also provide enhanced support for hierarchical data structures, built-in flexible text searches, and unstructured documents.
