One of the key features that makes Informix the ideal choice as an IoT database is its built-in support for MQTT protocol. It allows users to publish data to an Informix database directly via MQTT. This article will show the users how to do it and we will be using the informix sample code that is available in the GitHub repository -https://github.com/informix/samples-MQTT-python.

In this post we look at methods to define data marts in the Informix Warehouse Accelerator (IWA). IWA is a software appliance for the Informix database server, using in-memory, columnar data storage for business intelligence applications doing OLAP. For such workloads IWA typically can achieve a query acceleration of 10 - 100 times faster than running the workload within the Informix database server.

This feature was introduced in the Informix 12.10.xC10 fixpack release. It allows you to assign a character string to your CSDK or JDBC client session and identify that character string on the database server. This is useful for environments where same userid runsmultiple instances of the same application, and there is a need to distinguish one session from the other.
