EnterpriseDB - PostgreSQL with Oracle Compatibility
By Pete Freitag
I have been hearing a bit of buzz about EnterpriseDB lately. I think the main reason is that they just secured $7 million in venture capital funding.
What is EnterpriseDB?
EnterpriseDB is based on the source code for the open source PostgreSQL database server. PostgreSQL is the most fully featured open source database out there, they already support pretty much everything on the MySQL 5 feature list.
What the EnterpriseDB people have done is taken the PostgreSQL source code and added features to make it more compatable with Oracle.
EnterpriseDB 2005s built-in compatibility features allow most existing Oracle-based applications to run unchanged. If you are building new applications, there is no need to learn new versions of SQL syntax, data types, triggers, and stored procedures. Your existing applications - and your existing skill sets - work with EnterpriseDB.
Enterprise DB starts at Free (1CPU, 1GB Ram, 4GB data) and goes up to $5000/CPU a year with the best support options.
EnterpriseDB - PostgreSQL with Oracle Compatibility was first published on September 14, 2005.
