A05. Making the most of Informix Primary Storage Manager

Tom Beebe /xDB Systems

With Informix version 12, IBM introduced PSM, a replacement for the frustrating and slow ISM (Informix Storage Manager). In this performance boosted, streamlined, powerful storage manager Informix now allows the use of onbar to perform backups when you don’t have a commercial storage manager available. In this talk we will go over how to get set up with PSM, ways to migrate data, and how to integrate it with cloud based storage such as Amazon’s S3. If you still rely on ontape it may be time to take a look at your storage solution and see if it is time to use PSM for faster, more versatile and more flexible backups.
