Hi netPi community,

just to let you know that you can easily install and run the free IBM Informix Developer Edition (IBM's IoT database for the edge) Docker image on the netPi. The docker image can be found here:

https://hub.docker.com/r/ibmcom/informix-rpi

As soon as the image is up and running, you will have access to a simple sensor database which can store JSON formatted sensor readings in a time series. The Informix database can be accessed through a REST API, MQTT, the MongoDB API, JDBC, ODBC, .NET and more.

I will compile soon a short tutorial on how to use the Informix DB on the netPi. In the meantime you can also refer to a series of short How-To articles which I posted some time ago on the Raspberry Pi Forum: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=97199

If you might have any questions, just let me know...
