A quick look at the new Informix v.14.10 installation mechanism

With the release of IBM Informix v.14.10, there is a significant change to how Informix is installed and migration occurs across different editions. Instead of separate binaries for each Informix edition, there is a single universal binary but edition specific license files which control which features are enabled. This allows customers to download one binary bundle and use it throughout their enterprise. With the appropriate license file, customers can select which edition to activate or can easily change editions without extensive downtime or having to re-install the entire system potentially overwriting critical files. This short video explains how this new installation process works.
