Sun Cluster agent for Informix

In August 2007, we started an OpenSolaris project to develop an Open HA Cluster (OHAC) agent for Informix Dynamic Server (IDS), providing a design specification, cheat sheets and code reviews to anyone that was interested.  Within the next few months that followed, the OHAC agent for IDS was complete and available for anyone to download and use.

However, what the OHAC agent for IDS does not have is full 24x7 support for the agent.  Today we've filled that gap by making available for download the Sun Cluster agent for Informix which has been fully tested by our QA group.  The Sun Cluster agent for Informix allows customers that require 24x7 support to purchase a support contract and differs from the OHAC agent for IDS in this regard.

We've tested the Sun Cluster agent for Informix on Solaris 10 (SPARC & x86) in global and non-global zones.  Our initial supported configuration is for IDS v11, however there are internal reports of customers successfully trying out the Sun Cluster agent for Informix with IDS v9.4. Nevertheless, today's supported configuration is for IDS v11.

I hope our development and now delivery of the Sun Cluster agent for Informix is useful and represents a path that you could follow.  The following links maybe useful,

You can find our other OHAC projects and general community information here.
