Pre-order now: Administering Informix Dynamic Server, by Carlton Doe

As pointed out by Susan Visser, Amazon is now taking preorders for Carlton Doe's forthcoming book:  "Administering Informix Dynamic Server:  Building the Foundation"

Geared towards database server administrators who need to get a server up and running in a short amount of time, this guide focuses on the basic skills required to administer and maintain the Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) data server. Each of the major functional areas of the database server are reviewed, including designing, initializing, monitoring, building availability layers, securing data, and the data processing environment. This book reviews how the IDS works, how to install it, how to configure a database environment, back up, recovery, and includes an introduction to monitoring instance operations, making it useful to current IDS users who need to upgrade from earlier versions of the data server as well as those who have never used IDS before.

Head on over to Susan's blog for more details on the book, or Amazon to preorder.
