20 xviii Migrating from Microsoft SQL Server to IBM Informix

21 1 Chapter 1. Introduction The database management system (DBMS) is now the core of enterprise computing. It must be capable of supporting a large number of concurrent users, various types of applications, and huge volumes of data. It is, therefore, critical that the DBMS can house, organize, manage with integrity, and deliver on demand the data that is collected and stored within an organization. The DBMS also has to change with the business requirements, due to changes in client demands, and has to be enabled with a robust set of tools and applications that can accommodate the change and growth in the organization easily. Coping with this changing environment requires speed and flexibility. Critical to meeting these changing requirements is maintaining a dynamic IT support infrastructure. IBM Informix is designed to work in such an environment to help your organization meet all these challenges. This IBM Redbooks publication provides information that can help Microsoft SQL Server customers understand, plan for, and execute a migration to Informix in the easiest possible manner. We describe the differences between the two architectures, the tools for administration and development, the data definition language (DDL), SQL considerations, data conversion, and application conversion. With this information, you can gather and document your migration requirements, develop your required transition methodology, and plan and execute the migration activities in an orderly and cost-effective manner.

22 1.1 Migration considerations Changing your DBMS platform can be a big challenge. Complexity, total cost, and the risk of downtime are key considerations when deciding whether to start such a project. However, with good planning, education, and product knowledge, you can minimize these concerns. Migrating from SQL Server to Informix requires a certain level of knowledge of both environments. Because you are reading this book, you are likely already using, and are familiar with, SQL Server. Therefore, the purpose of this section is to introduce Informix. This section does not include an exhaustive description of Informix but, instead, includes a high-level overview of the functions and features to help you understand the structure and capabilities that are available, so that you can more easily relate them to the SQL Server environment. Subsequent sections will highlight additional features of Informix. Many of the Informix features are unique in the industry today, enabling clients to use information in new and more efficient ways to create a business advantage. These features are designed to help businesses better use existing information assets as they move into an on-demand business environment. In this environment, the following operations for mission-critical database management applications are supported: Online transaction processing (OLTP) operations OLTP applications are often used to capture new data or to update existing data. An order-entry system is a typical example of an OLTP application. OLTP applications have the following characteristics: Transactions that involve small amounts of data Indexed access to data Many users Frequent queries and updates Fast response times Batch and decision-support system (DSS) operations, including online analytical processing (OLAP) DSS applications often report on or consolidate data that OLTP operations have captured over time. These applications provide information that is often used for accounting, strategic planning, and decision making. Typical DSS applications include payroll, inventory, and financial reports. DSS applications have the following characteristics: Many queries that process and return a large number of rows Sequential access to data Few users 2 Migrating from Microsoft SQL Server to IBM Informix

23 Small number of transactions Queried by front-end tools Informix offers capabilities to support OLTP and DSS operations, to minimize database downtime, and to enable a fast and full recovery if an outage occurs. The new suite of business availability functionality in Informix provides greater flexibility and performance in backing up and restoring an instance, automated statistical and performance metric gathering, improvements in administration, and reductions in the cost to operate the data server. Informix is flexible and can accommodate change and growth in the applications, data volumes, and number of users. It can scale in performance, as well as in functionality. The technology that is used by Informix also enables efficient use of existing hardware and software, including single and multiprocessor architectures. It helps you keep pace with technological growth, including the requirement for improvements, such as more complex application support, which often calls for the use of nontraditional, or rich, data types that cannot be stored in simple character or numeric form. Informix delivers proven technology that efficiently integrates new and complex data directly into the database. It handles time-series, spatial, geodetic, Extensible Markup Language (XML), video, image, and other user-defined data side-by-side with traditional data to meet today s most rigorous data and business demands. It also helps businesses lower total cost of ownership (TCO) by taking advantage of its general ease of use and administration, as well as its support of existing standards for development tools and systems infrastructure. In addition to the DBMS, you also need to consider the migration of applications. Converting an application across separate platforms and separate databases is certainly not a trivial task. The decision to convert is generally made at a high level and when there is full justification in terms of costs and expected return on investment. The following issues indicate (and are the main components to build a business case for) the need to convert applications: Performance Aspects of performance include scalability, availability, data movement, response time, and the ability to support multiple query workloads. Configuration costs Realistic cost assessment is based on overall development, maintenance, tuning cost, and the full exploitation of current investments, both in terms of skill sets and reduced license costs. Chapter 1. Introduction 3

24 Data integration Market trends highlight the importance of enterprise servers and the need to avoid data structure fragmentation to increase the value of business-critical systems. Fragmentation can cause cross-functional currency and consistency issues and can hamper innovation. Data infrastructure Data is no longer an application-specific resource but an enterprise-wide tool that provides critical business information for a competitive advantage. Often, it is not enough to navigate through the data, but it is necessary to invest in the infrastructure to integrate enterprise views of data more easily. Informix is a development-neutral environment and supports a comprehensive array of application development tools for the rapid deployment of applications under Linux, Microsoft Windows, and UNIX operating environments. Understanding the features and functionality of Informix, compared to the features and functionality of SQL Server, can assist you in developing a migration plan, which is necessary for a successful migration. 1.2 Informix position IBM Informix Dynamic Server 11 (Informix 11) combines the robustness, high performance, availability, and scalability that are needed in businesses today. Informix is built on the IBM Informix Dynamic Scalable Architecture (DSA) and provides one of the most effective solutions available. It includes next-generation parallel data server architecture that delivers mainframe-caliber scalability, manageability, and performance; minimal operating system overhead; automatic distribution of workload; and the capability to extend the server to handle new types of data. Informix can adjust dynamically as requirements change from accommodating larger amounts of data, to changing query operations, to increasing numbers of concurrent users. It is designed to use efficiently all the capabilities of the existing hardware and software configuration, including single and multiprocessor architectures. You also have the choice of installing and running Informix 11 on UNIX, Windows, Linux, and Apple. Informix 11 is supported on all major UNIX platforms, including SUN, HP, and IBM. Informix 11 is also supported on the many versions of Linux, including Red Hat, SUSE, Debian, Asianux, and Ubuntu. 4 Migrating from Microsoft SQL Server to IBM Informix

25 With Version 11, Informix increases its lead over the data server landscape with even faster performance, a new suite of business availability functionality, greater flexibility and performance in backing up and restoring an instance, automated statistical and performance metric gathering, new autonomic and dynamic features to support changing workloads, improvements in administration, significant reductions in storage costs through data compression, cost-effective infrastructure extensions to support warehouse workloads, and many more features. The maturity and success of Informix is built on many years of widespread use in critical business operations, which attests to its stability, performance, and usability. Informix 11 moves this already highly successful enterprise relational database server to a significantly higher level. The addition of an extremely large number of features in the latest releases of Informix, Informix 11.10, and Informix also demonstrates the commitment by IBM to support this product well into the future. 1.3 IBM Informix editions IBM has packaged Informix from a price and functionality perspective into for-purchase and no-charge editions. These Informix editions are designed to help you maximize your investment and minimize your costs while helping you benefit from enterprise-class functionality. Regardless of which edition you purchase, each edition comes with the full implementation of Dynamic Scalable Architecture (DSA) and its unmatched performance, reliability, ease of use, and availability (depending on bundle-driven hardware, connection, and scalability restrictions). Not all license terms and conditions are contained in this book. See an authorized IBM marketing representative, IBM Business Partner, or the following web page for details: No-charge editions The following no-charge editions are available as separate offerings subject to the IBM International License Agreement for Non-Warranted Programs (ILAN): IBM Informix Innovator-C Edition: This edition is for clients that are looking for a robust and powerful database environment that can support small production workloads. This edition provides the most widely used data processing functionality, including limited Chapter 1. Introduction 5

26 Enterprise Replication and High Availability clustering. Available on all supported platforms, this edition is limited to one socket with no more than four cores and a total of 2 GB of RAM. The Innovator-C no-charge Informix edition is an offering to be used for development, test, and user production workloads without a license fee. Only user organizations can use this edition. You cannot redistribute this edition without signing a redistribution contract. Support is community-based though an optional for-charge service and support package is available. IBM Developer Edition: For application development and testing only, the Informix Developer Edition includes a full suite of functionality at no charge. Informix Developer Edition includes all the functionality that is available in Informix Ultimate Edition. It contains scalability limits for non-production use, including processing, memory, and storage limitations. It is available on a wide range of operating systems in 32-bit and 64-bit versions where appropriate. Its hardware support is limited to one physical CPU, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB in data storage. Because Informix Developer Edition is offered at no charge, it comes without formal support from IBM. A number of forums exist in the Informix development community that users can join for help and support using Informix Developer Edition. You can upgrade Informix Developer Edition directly to any other edition simply by installing the new data server binaries For-purchase editions For large companies that need all of the Informix features to handle high data loads, scalability, and 24x7x365 availability, the Informix Growth Edition and the Informix Ultimate Edition are ideal choices. Informix Choice Edition Informix Choice Edition is ideal for a small to medium-size business. This edition is available for both Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh operating systems. This edition is limited to a total of eight cores over a maximum of two sockets and 8 GB of RAM. The Informix Choice Edition includes limited Enterprise Replication (ER) clustering with 2-root nodes to send or receive data updates within the cluster. This edition also provides limited High Availability (HA) cluster functionality; along with the primary server, you can have one secondary node, either a High Availability Data Replication (HDR) secondary or Remote Standby Secondary (RSS). You can use the HA cluster secondary node for SQL operations. This edition does not support use of the Shared Disk secondary (SD secondary) node type. 6 Migrating from Microsoft SQL Server to IBM Informix

27 Informix Growth Edition Informix Growth Edition is for any business that needs additional power to process SQL operations, to manage extremely large databases efficiently, or to build a robust failover system to ensure database continuation in the event of a natural or human-caused outage. This edition provides unlimited Enterprise Replication (ER) functionality; however, the High Availability (HA) cluster functionality is limited to a primary server and up to two secondary node types. The Informix Growth Edition is available on all supported operating systems, including both 32-bit and 64-bit ports, and has all the components, utilities, availability features, and storage scalability. Its hardware support is limited, however, to a total of 16 cores over a maximum of four sockets and 16 GB of RAM. Further, Informix Growth Edition cannot be used to support Internet-based application connections. To manage large databases, you need the ability to insert or extract data quickly, as well as to perform full or targeted backups. Informix Growth Edition includes functionality to do both tasks. For example, you can use the High-Performance Loader utility to execute bulk data load and unload operations. It uses the DSA threading model to process multiple concurrent input or output data streams, with or without data manipulation by other threads as the job executes. Also, it includes the ON-Bar utility suite for partial-instance or full-instance backups and restores. These backups and restores can be multithreaded, so you can send the output to multiple backup devices to reduce the amount of time that is required to create a backup or to perform a restore. If you want to provide continuation of database services in the event of a natural or human-made outage, you can use the Informix High Availability Data Replication (HDR) option with Informix Growth Edition. With HDR, the results of data manipulation statements, such as inserts, updates, or deletes, are mirrored in real time to a hot standby server. When in standby mode, the mirror copy supports only query operations for reporting applications. Depending on the number of reporting applications, offloading the application execution to the mirror server can provide a measurable performance improvement to day-to-day operations. Furthermore, the secondary server can now also be enabled for data manipulation statements. This added functionality can provide the benefits of workload partitioning and capacity relief, in addition to high availability. Informix Ultimate Edition Informix Ultimate Edition includes the full feature set of the database server. In addition to the features of Informix Growth Edition, Informix Ultimate Edition includes the features that are required to provide the scalability to handle extremely high user loads and to provide 24x7x365 high availability. You can deploy Informix Ultimate Edition in any size environment that requires the richest set of functionality that is supported by the most stable and scalable Chapter 1. Introduction 7

28 architecture available in the market today. Informix Ultimate Edition has no processor, memory, or disk access limitations other than those limitations imposed by the operating system on which it is installed. In addition to HDR, Informix Ultimate Edition also includes Informix Enterprise Replication (ER), an asynchronous mechanism for the distribution of data throughout the enterprise. ER uses simple SQL statements to define what database objects to replicate, to where the objects are replicated, and under what conditions replication occurs. ER preserves state information about all the servers and the data that they have received and guarantees delivery of data even if the replication target is temporarily unavailable. Data flow can be either unidirectional or bidirectional, and several conflict resolution rule sets are included to automatically handle near-simultaneous changes to the same object on separate servers. ER is flexible and is platform-independent and version-independent. Data objects from an Informix 7 instance on Windows can be replicated to an Informix 11 instance on an AIX or other operating system without issue. The replication topology is completely separate from the actual physical network topology and can be configured to support fully meshed, hierarchical, or forest of trees/snowflake connection paths. ER can scale easily to support hundreds of nodes, each with customized replication rules, without affecting regular transaction processing. Informix Ultimate Edition supports concurrent operation of both HDR and ER, which gives a business the ability to protect itself from outages, as well as to migrate data automatically either for application partitioning or distribution and consolidation purposes. With the introduction of support for additional secondary server types in Informix 11, Informix Ultimate Edition has the option to provide a complete high availability, disaster recovery, workload balancing, and online capacity relief solution with minimal setup and cost. In addition, Informix Ultimate Edition can efficiently process extremely complicated SQL operations on large database instances through the use of the Parallel Data Query (PDQ) and Memory Grant Manager (MGM) components. With these features, database server resources can be effectively divided to allow maximum resource utilization for large queries without starving and compromising non-pdq queries. With these features, database server resources can be prereserved and then deployed fully without interruption to process any given SQL operation. 8 Migrating from Microsoft SQL Server to IBM Informix
