Informix Software Inc says it plans to deliver its Informix-OnLine database engine as a NetWare Loadable Module for Novell Inc’s NetWare 386 operating system in the fourth quarter and reckons it will be the first database server for NetWare 386 to provide fault-tolerant transaction processing. It combines the functionality of Informix-OnLine for Unix with support for the multi-threading and 32-bit architecture of NetWare 386. It also handles information objects which can range from word processing documents, graphs, spreadsheets, digitised images, facsimiles and speech up to 2Gb in size. It includes support for on-line archiving, disk mirroring, fast recovery, and distributed database applications. It has also been enhanced with use of shared memory and group commits, which enable OnLine to send groups of transactions to the disk at the same time. With the multi-threaded architecture, several users can share the same database engine process, reducing the drain on the central processor. It costs $5,000 for an unlimited number of users.
