Despite the well-publicised problems facing Informix Software, two hardware partners have come out in support and said they are not giving up on the ailing database supplier.
Hewlett-Packard has said it will support Informix's Universal Server database on its next generation of machines, which will be based on the IA-64 (Merced) chip it is developing with Intel.
Intel, meanwhile, plans to jointly unveil a developer's kit for building multimedia applications that run against Informix's Universal Server and on an Intel MMX-based machine. The Datablade developer kit with MMX support costs $150 and is due by late June.
