Sun Cluster agent for Informix

Guest Author

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,
