EnterpriseDB® (EDB™), the leading 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.

It enables federated enterprise data management, integrates Postgres with MongoDB and Hadoop, and improves DevOps and Database-as-a-Service with OpenStack and multi-cloud support “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. Companies of all sizes, and particularly the F1000, are systematically unraveling their legacy data management models, infrastructures, and vendors – upgrading each part with open source-based alternatives,” 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.”

IT organizations face a complex set of decisions regarding their database management infrastructures, and Chief Data and Information Officers struggle to keep pace. With the EDB Postgres platform, organizations have a partner to provide the solutions and support to transform the datacenter into an innovation platform with open source. Many have already begun this transformation with 20 percent of the Fortune 500 having deployed EDB Postgres to transform and modernize operations. They have realized savings of up to 80 percent by deploying EDB Postgres in place of traditional, commercial, and proprietary solutions – savings that could be reinvested in new strategic initiatives for competitive advantage.

“EDB Postgres has brought new levels of efficiency and productivity to our data environment so that IT can emphasize new initiatives and contribute to corporate business objectives,” said Javier Martinez, IT Transformation and Technology Manager, Telefónica S.A., a broadband and telecommunications provider based in Spain. “Working with EDB to develop new capabilities demonstrated the company’s commitment to helping us build a next-generation data center infrastructure that will ensure we can continue to innovate.” 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.”
