Did you know that Informix has a utility that can deploy snapshots of a pre-configured and installed Informix database? Ifxdeploy is intended for exactly this purpose. Imagine you need to make exact copies of a running database with data to a dozen machines. Ifxdeploy is the way to do this. While often talked about to support creation of embedded databases, it can be used in your data center as well. In this session we will review the new command line options that have been created for ifxdeploy and learn:
- How to use ifxdeployassistant
- How to package your your deliverable as a single file
- Review the internals of instance deployment, how we use external backups and limitations of this approach
