Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Informix has followed rival database specialists Sybase and Oracle onto the Linux bandwagon. The company has pledged to ship a version of its Dynamic Server database for the freeware Unix-based OS early next year. Informix released a Linux version of its SE database back in July, largely to see what kind of reaction it would achieve. The high demand for that product led to yesterday's announcement. In fact, company bosses believe the OS is set to make major in-roads into corporate environments, where it is becoming a legitimite competitor for Windows NT. Dynamic Server for Linux is set to ship during Q1 1999. In the meantime, Informix will ship a Linux version of its Dynamic 4GL toolset. The company plans to support the OS throughout its product range.
