A new replication grid management facility provides a central administration tool for administration of HDR primary and secondary servers, RS server, SD servers, and Enterprise Replication participants. Embeddability and deployment tools are also included to enable users to package snapshots of Informix instances and data.
In this course, you will learn the process of generating multiple copies of data at one or more sites through the planning, implementing, and administering of Informix Enterprise Replication. You will also learn how to configure remote server that can be used for hot-site backup using High Availability Data Replication (HDR) and by configuring Remote Standalone Secondary and Shared Disk Secondary servers.

Geared towards database server administrators who need to get a server up and running in a short amount of time, this guide focuses on the basic skills required to administer and maintain the Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) data server. Each of the major functional areas of the database server are reviewed, including designing, initializing, monitoring, building availability layers, securing data, and the data processing environment. This book reviews how the IDS works, how to install it, how to configure a database environment, back up, recovery, and includes an introduction to monitoring instance operations, making it useful to current IDS users who need to upgrade from earlier versions of the data server as well as those who have never used IDS before.
