IBM Ramps Informix Integration Plans

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From InfoWorld]

IBM has announced plans to move more of its Informix-bred database technologies to Big Blue's own DB2 data management platform. Technologies from IBM's acquisition of Informix in 2001, such as the Cloudscape embedded Java database and Datablades which manage special data types, are being migrated to IBM platforms.

The development teams for Cloudscape and IBM's embedded database, DB2 Everyplace, have been combined, said Janet Perna, general manager of IBM's data management software group in an interview with InfoWorld this week. DB2 Everyplace runs on embedded Linux and the Pocket PC platforms, she said.

Meanwhile, DB2 technology is being fitted to the Domino messaging server IBM now owns via its Lotus acquisition, company executives report.
