Make the Jump and Save with the IDS 7-11 Tradeup Offer

Customers Save up to 60% When They Move from v 7 to 11

As IIUG members, you've undoubtedly seen what IDS 11 can do. Whether you've attended a training workshop, a "Cheetah" tech day, or experienced the many facets of IDS 11 at a hands on lab, you know that IDS 11 is an improvement upon an already innovative data server. But have you made the jump?

Released in July with an extensive list of impressive enhancements, Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) 11 has been praised for being the data server that provides continuous and global availability, highest OLTP performance, and lowest total cost of ownership. The new features and performance enhancements alone in this celebrated release have given customers plenty of incentive to switch to IDS 11.

Now, with the IDS 7-11 Tradeup Promotion, customers have even more reason to upgrade. From now to December 31, customers still running IDS 7 can upgrade to version 11 and save 41–60% on the software licenses. Eligible IBM IDS 11 optional features have also been reduced by 25%. This means customers can experience IDS 11 performance at the price of renewal. With IDS being known for its seamless upgrades, this is a can't—miss opportunity. Encourage your customers to tradeup today!

The IDS 7-11 tradeup promotion is a great incentive for customers to upgrade to IDS 11. IDS V7 will reach End–of–Marketing (EOM) on September 19, 2008 and End–of–Service (EOS) by September 30, 2009. To avoid support gaps, customers should plan to upgrade soon.

The promotion is available to all customers worldwide. For more details on which products are eligible in this offer and to learn more about the tradeup offer, visit the Official promotion site:
