EnterpriseDB to Demonstrate EnterpriseDB Advanced Server 8.2 at OSCON 2007

SVP, Product Development, Gary Long to Present "Techniques for Managing Distributed Software Development Around the World"

ISELIN, NJ--(Marketwire - July 19, 2007) - OSCON 2007 - BOOTH #519 -


EnterpriseDB, the Oracle-compatible database company, will be exhibiting and demonstrating its flagship product, EnterpriseDB Advanced Server 8.2, at OSCON 2007.

EnterpriseDB Advanced Server is an enterprise-class relational database management system (RDBMS) that is compatible with applications written for Oracle. This means that applications written for Oracle run on EnterpriseDB without modification and Oracle-skilled developers can use EnterpriseDB without retraining. EnterpriseDB Advanced Server is based on PostgreSQL, the world's most advanced open source database, ensuring world-class data integrity, security, and performance necessary for enterprise environments. In addition, the total cost of ownership (TCO) of an enterprise database solution powered by EnterpriseDB Advanced Server is only a small fraction of the TCO of a comparable Oracle-powered solution.

Gary Long, senior vice president, product development, EnterpriseDB, will be presenting "Techniques for Managing Distributed Software Development Around the World" on Wednesday, July 25 at 5:20 p.m. This session will address the challenges of managing worldwide software development.

Jim Nasby, senior consultant, EnterpriseDB, will be participating in the "State of Lightning Talks" session on Thursday, July 26 at 10:45 a.m. In this session, moderated by PostgreSQL Core Team Member Josh Berkus, Nasby will provide an update on EnterpriseDB projects and its work with the PostgreSQL community.


Now in its ninth year, the O'Reilly Open Source Convention is the bazaar of open source technologies, welcoming new voices and projects alongside the platforms, languages, and apps that started the open source movement. OSCON returns to the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon July 23-27, bringing together more than 2500 experts, visionaries, and hackers in the trenches to explore all that open source has to offer.
