Alibaba Cloud Expands Technical Partnership with EnterpriseDB to Provide Enhanced Postgres Cloud Database Capabilities on Alibaba Cloud
BEDFORD, Mass., September 26, 2018 – Since 2015, Alibaba Cloud and EnterpriseDB (EDB) have partnered on cloud database products that have been brought to market by Alibaba. As part of that initial partnership, Alibaba launched ApsaraDB for PPAS, a relational database as a service based on Alibaba Cloud Apsara architecture and EDB Postgres Advanced Server. Alibaba Cloud will strengthen its partnership with EDB to provide global users enhanced Postgres cloud database services and products.
EnterpriseDB provides Oracle compatibility to enhance the world’s favorite open source relational database management system (RDBMS), PostgreSQL. EnterpriseDB’s customers include many of the leading Fortune 500 companies, providing them with enterprise-class solutions based on Postgres. EDB Postgres helps users reduce the technical difficulty of migrating from enterprise database management systems like Oracle to Postgres, dramatically reducing overall total cost of ownership (TCO).
“Making it easy for users to migrate databases to the cloud is critical to greater adoption of cloud computing,” said Simon Hu, president of Alibaba Cloud. “Through our expanded technical collaboration with EnterpriseDB, we will strengthen the integration of ApsaraDB and EDB Postgres and provide users with enterprise-class database products and solutions in the Alibaba Cloud.”
“Over the last three years, Alibaba Cloud has been an important partner for EnterpriseDB. This expanded technical collaboration will deliver greater value to customers on the Alibaba Cloud,” said Ed Boyajian, president and CEO, EnterpriseDB. “Moving forward, this gives us a better way to serve customers in China and beyond.”
