  • Avoiding High Oracle DBMS Costs with EDB Postgres
  • Although the most sensitive layer of the infrastructure stack, the database layer has the potential for the greatest cost savings and strategic advantages.
    • For example, one Oracle license alone lists at $47,500 per processor core (without any add-on features) with annual operating expenses equal to 22% of the total license costs.
    • Implementing Postgres is a wise alternative to Oracle’s business practices and price increases.
    • Moving to open source-based databases, like EDB Postgres Advanced Server, enables savings of 70% to 80%, freeing millions of dollars for these new projects.
    Not only does this reduce capital and operating expenses, but IT vendor flexibility also increases.
