Migrating data from Infomix to MariaDB

This guide will show you how to easily migrate data from Infomix to MariaDB through a few simple steps with ESF Database Migration Toolkit, simplifying the complex migration processes and saving you valuable time.

Infomix vs. MariaDB:

  • Informix is a relational database management system (RDBMS) developed by IBM. Known for its high performance, scalability, and efficient handling of complex data, Informix is used in a variety of applications ranging from online transaction processing (OLTP) to data warehousing. It features a robust architecture that supports high availability and extensive data replication capabilities, making it a preferred choice for enterprises requiring reliable and fast database solutions.
  • MariaDB is a powerful open-source relational database management system (RDBMS) that originated as a fork of MySQL. It was developed by the original creators of MySQL in response to concerns over its acquisition by Oracle Corporation. MariaDB retains compatibility with MySQL while offering additional features, improved performance, and enhanced security. It is widely used in various applications ranging from small-scale web databases to large-scale enterprise systems, thanks to its flexibility, scalability, and active community support.
