IBM has launched Informix Dynamic Server Express version 10, an embeddable database designed to help SMEs meet their growing information management demands.   

“Application providers that serve SMEs are looking to gain a competitive edge by building an on-demand information infrastructure that helps their clients anticipate and respond to changing business requirements,” said Bernie Spang, director of IBM information management. 

“Informix Express provides the foundation for these organisations to expand their information management capabilities and also allows them to free up skilled resources and focus on next-generation business applications.”

With the ability to upgrade to a “more robust database solution”, Informix Express is ideal for smaller businesses that need room to grow their IT infrastructure in the future, according to IBM.

Informix Express v10 comes with automated installation and deployment, which takes place without affecting a customer’s existing infrastructure. 

There is also autonomic self-maintenance, self-monitoring and self-configuring capabilities that reduce complexity and the level of skills and resources required to manage the database. 

The database can be run on Unix, Windows or Linux. Informix Dynamic Server Express v10 costs from £67 per user.
