EnterpriseDB Intros Database-as-a-Service for Public and Private Clouds

EnterpriseDB Intros Database-as-a-Service for Public and Private Clouds

EnterpriseDB has introduced a full-featured, enterprise-class PostgreSQL database-as-a-service (DaaS) for public and private clouds with support for Amazon EC2 and Eucalyptus.

The new launch-Postgres Plus Cloud Server- can also be used outside the cloud as an easy-to-use scale-out database architecture for bare metal deployment in standard data centers. EnterpriseDB provides PostgreSQL and Oracle compatibility products and services. With its new release, it is bringing capabilities expected in a premier cloud database solution. The company is now delivering point-and-click simple setup and management with web-based interface and transparent/elastic node addition capabilities to its users.

Postgres Plus Cloud Server also ensures automatic load balancing and failover; status management and monitoring; online backup and point-in-time recovery; and database cloning. EnterpriseDB will offer two versions of its cloud database within Postgres Plus Cloud Server. The first offering is an advanced open source database called PostgreSQL 9.0. Its second release- Postgres Plus Advanced Server 9.0 provides the best enterprise-class performance, scalability and security on top of PostgreSQL.

EnterpriseDB is set to open a private Postgres Plus Cloud Server beta for customers and partners on August 31, 2011.

This should be great news according to the company because even though a large number of organizations are enabling applications to be deployed on public and private cloud infrastructure, there are no PostgreSQL DaaS options that have the features, functionality and support required for enterprise environments.

Postgres Plus Cloud Server addresses these requirements and also offers a simple way of moving applications written to run on Oracle to the cloud at a fraction of the cost of Oracle license prices.

PostgreSQL is now ready for prime time in the cloud,” said Ed Boyajian, CEO of EnterpriseDB. “Postgres Plus Cloud Server is the first complete database-as-a-service for PostgreSQL users. IT professionals who have been toying with MySQL on Amazon RDS now have the enterprise open source choice they have been wanting. In addition, Oracle users have an effective way of moving applications to a full-featured, enterprise-class database for both public and private clouds with a cloud implementation of our complete Oracle compatibility suite.”
