There isn't really a "best" RDBMS. I'll offer some thoughts on Informix....

Quote:
> Information like:-

> 1. CPU Utilization and Response Time of the Database.

Very scalable in SMP/MPP/shared nothing environments. Informix is particularly
efficient in the Unix environment. Response time depends on toomany external
factors.
Quote:
> 2. World Market share of RDBMS in Percentage

Second biggest based on $s, I think the biggest on number of licences (Unix
only).
Quote:
> 3. Transaction Per Minute (tpmC)

These vary platform to plafrom. But Informix is typically used by hardware vendors
as the RDBMS of choice for TpmC benchmarks.
Quote:
> 4. Compatibility with hetrogeneous systems

There are gateways available for all other databases, and there is an XA kit
available.
Quote:
> 5. Integration capability with Internet/Intranet tools.

Excellent. Also check out Illustra, which will be merged with the mainstrem
Informix server by the end of the year.
Quote:
> 6. Integration capability with Network Management Software
Like what?
> 7. Scalability
Outstanding.
> 8. Connectivity to Off-The-Shelf Applications (like Accounting)

There are bazillions of apps in the ISV catalogue.
Quote:
> 9. Downtime.

Capable of 24x7 operation.
Quote:
> 10. Reliability.

Supports disk mirroring, data replication, etc.
Quote:
> 11. Vendor Support.

It's good in South Africa... :-)
Quote:
> 12. Integration with Third Party GUI Tools.

Full ODBC support, some other tools have native access.
Quote:
> 13. Openness (Connectivity to other Database).
See 4.
> 14. Migration Facility.
From what?
> 15. Best Operating System for the Database.

Unix. There is an NT port, which I have no personal experience of.
Quote:
> 16. Volume of Data Supported and it's performance.

Capable of multi terabyte volumes. I've never had a problem
with performance, ever.

HTH. Sorry if the answers were a bit vague, but so were your questions! :-)
