EDISON, NJ--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - EnterpriseDB, the leading enterprise open source database company, announced today that it has been named to the 2008 SD Times 100.

"It's an honor to receive this distinction from SD Times," said Ed Boyajian, chief executive officer, EnterpriseDB. "It's particularly gratifying that SD Times recognizes the growing popularity of open source databases as an alternative to expensive proprietary offerings.
