Migrating and Upgrading to Informix 14 or the cloud. The easy and the hard way.
There are several easy procedures to upgrade and migrate Informix. We will look at the easy way (in-place upgrades, dbexport, cdr migrate, backup/restore), but sometimes they may not work for you, and you need to create a custom process. We will go over a set of procedures and scripts using HPL, external tables, and parallel unloads/loads that I have used over the last few years to migrate from small systems up through terabyte-sized databases to VMs, new hardware, and the cloud.
These are my latest Sysmaster Scripts from my presentation at the Informix IIUG World Conference in 2019.

Running Informix in a Monster Virtual Machine Lester Knutsen presented at the IIUG Informix Conference April 23-27, 2018 in Raleigh, NC.
A monster virtual machine is a VM with lots of memory, CPUs and disks. I have been dealing with many Informix database servers running in a virtual environment and will share some of the problems and solutions for Informix to work well in VM. We will talk about everything from a VM on my laptop to a VM with more than 256 GB of memory and more than 96 Virtual CPUs.
