Informix Best Practices – Running Informix in a Virtual Machine

Presented by Lester Knutsen on August 23, 2017


Virtual Machines have many advantages and disadvantages. This Webcast will explore the best practices for running Informix in a Virtual Machine. We will look at small and large databases in virtual machines. A monster virtual machine is a VM with lots of memory, CPUs and disks. I have had the opportunity to performance tune 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.
