EnterpriseDB Announces Postgres Plus® Cloud Server

First PostgreSQL Database-as-a-Service Supports Public and Private Clouds Including Amazon EC2, Eucalyptus and Bare Metal Deployments With Oracle Compatibility Features

BEDFORD, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 25, 2011) - EnterpriseDB, the leading worldwide provider of PostgreSQL and Oracle compatibility products and services, today announced Postgres Plus® Cloud Server, a full-featured, enterprise-class PostgreSQL database-as-a-service (DaaS) for public and private clouds with support for Amazon EC2 and Eucalyptus. In addition, Postgres Plus® Cloud Server can be used outside the cloud as an easy-to-use scale-out database architecture for bare metal deployment in standard data centers.

Today, more enterprises than ever are enabling applications to be deployed on public and private cloud infrastructure. However, to date there have been no PostgreSQL DaaS options available that have the features, functionality and support that are required for enterprise environments. Postgres Plus® Cloud Server meets these demanding enterprise requirements while also offering a simple way of moving applications written to run on Oracle to the cloud at a fraction of the cost of Oracle license prices. Postgres Plus® Cloud Server brings the leading capabilities that have come to be expected in a premier cloud database solution including:

  • Point-and-click simple setup and management with web-based interface
  • Transparent/elastic node addition
  • Automatic load balancing and failover
  • Status management and monitoring
  • Online backup and point-in-time recovery
  • Database Cloning
  • Postgres Plus® Advanced Server with its seventh generation Oracle compatibility features

"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."

Within Postgres Plus® Cloud Server, EnterpriseDB will offer two versions of its cloud database: PostgreSQL 9.0, the world's most advanced open source database; and Postgres Plus® Advanced Server 9.0, with its seventh generation of Oracle compatibility features providing the best enterprise-class performance, scalability and security on top of PostgreSQL.

On August 31, 2011, EnterpriseDB will open a private Postgres Plus® Cloud Server beta for customers and partners. This will be followed by a public webcast "PostgreSQL in the Cloud -- an Introduction to Postgres Plus® Cloud Server." To register, visit
