Informix, CoSORT Partner on E-Commerce Data Installations

Informix Corp. and Innovative Routines International Inc. (The CoSORT Co.) announced a complementary technology partnership. The partnership calls for direct use of CoSORT technology within the Ardent DataStage Suite on Unix and NT servers as a DataStage plugin, speeding the overall processing time of large data warehouse and data "webhouse" volumes.

The partnership accelerates data staging throughput with CoSORT's interface and symmetric multi-processing (SMP) sort engine, while improving extract, transform, and load (ETL) resource usage on busy servers. Ardent DataStorage users will be able to assign a specific number of processes (or threads on NT) used for sorting, as well as the amount of memory consumed per process, shared memory, and overflow disk. CoSORT allows administrators to prioritize sort jobs amid concurrent applications and preserve existing hardware assets.
