PostgreSQL or EDB Postgres Advanced Server: Which is Right for You?
PostgreSQL is becoming more and more popular as an alternative choice of database in the enterprise. PostgreSQL is a relational database management system (DBMS) that has been an active open source project since 1996. It is one of the oldest and most stable open source projects as a result of the commitment of its members and its independence as a standalone community.
But if you’re an enterprise, additional tools and capabilities are needed to run your mission-critical applications at scale. EnterpriseDB is a long-time supporter of the PostgreSQL open source project, making major feature contributions every year since 2006. We draw from our in-depth understanding of the technology to add features, capabilities and support around the PostgreSQL database in order to support enterprise applications.
