Informix has won its long running battle with Oracle over which company is entitled to use the Universal Server brand name for its database - they both are.
The two database companies have been in dispute since early last year about which of them owned the rights to use the words ?universal server?. Last July the San Francisco US District court kicked out a plea by Oracle to block Informix from using the term at all, pending a trial.
But on Thursday, the two companies annnounced they had reached an out of court settlement with neither party offering financial compensation. Informix will refer to its product as the Informix-Universal Server, while Oracle will refer to its product as the Oracle-Universal Server.
A third company, call centre automation firm Melita, will also be able to use the Unversal Server name.
