Which Databases Run on UNIX?

Hello,

I am trying to develop a matrix for the following five database applications:

1) DB2,
2) Informix,
3) Oracle,
4) SQL,
5) Sybase

For each application, I want to know whether or not they run on IBM AIX, HP HP-UX, or Sun Solaris.  For some reason I am finding it difficult to find this information myself.  Thanks!!

What are you calling SQL?  MS SQL Server?  
or some other product like MySQL or something else?

Visualize your virtual and backup environments

Create well-organized and polished visualizations of your virtual and backup environments when planning VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V or Veeam deployments. It helps you to gain better visibility and valuable business insights.

Oracle definitely runs all of those, as does Informix, MySQL and Sybase

SQL Server doesn't run on any of the unix platforms

DB2 AIX and HPUX, I'm not sure about solaris

I'm pretty sure Informix runs on all.  I have run it on HP-UX and OSF (Dec unix)

references to document support for all of the requested platforms

oracle - http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/index.html

sybase - http://infocenter.sybase.com/help/index.jsp?topic=/com.sybase.help.edi_4.2.edi42nfg/html/edi42nfg/edi42nfg4.htm

informix - https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27013343

mysql - http://www.mysql.com/support/supportedplatforms/database.html

db2 already mentioned above
sql server - windows only - specific windows platform support will vary by version, but still only variations on windows, no unix
