EnterpriseDB® (EDB™), the enterprise Postgres database company, today announced the immediate availability of the EDB Postgres™ platform, an enterprise class, integrated open source-based database management platform. The EDB Postgres platform enables a wide range of deployment topologies; integrates EDB’s mature, enterprise-ready Postgres database with other leading data management solutions; and offers a specialized partner ecosystem for new, more agile deployment models.
“We are on the cusp of the most significant open source transformation in history, and its economic impact will dwarf the great success of Linux. ” said Ed Boyajian, President and CEO of EDB. “With many proven but discrete open source technologies already widely in use, our customers have been very clear on what they need. They demand a more complete and integrated open source-based solution that meets or beats their current capabilities and at the same time simplifies usage and deployment. This was the imperative that led us to create the EDB Postgres Platform.”
According to Gartner, by 2018, more than 70% of new in-house applications will be developed on an OSDBMS, and 50% of existing commercial RDBMS instances either will have been converted or will be in the process of being converted.
“IT organizations across the globe are struggling to meet the demands of the digital transformation, yet the complex and expensive data infrastructures that serve their established back-office applications lack the flexibility and cost-scalability they need for these new application contexts,” said Carl Olofson, Research Vice President, Application Development and Deployment, IDC. “Integrated, subscription-based data management platforms like EDB Postgres enable organizations to move to the third platform, by supporting new agile development models and digital applications, and open source-based data management platforms provide the flexibility for reinvestment in new data-driven initiatives.”
