EnterpriseDB to Sponsor PostgreSQL Community Annual Conference

EDISON, NJ--(Marketwire - March 18, 2008) - EnterpriseDB announced today its participation in PGCon 2008, the annual conference for users and developers of PostgreSQL, the world's most advanced open source database. EnterpriseDB's Bruce Momjian and Pavan Deolasee, key PostgreSQL contributors and community leaders, will lead sessions on the first day of PGCon 2008. EnterpriseDB, a longtime supporter of the PostgreSQL community, is a Platinum Sponsor of the conference. PGCon 2008 will take place on May 22-23, 2008 at the University of Ottawa.

WHO:    Bruce Momjian, Senior Database Architect, EnterpriseDB
        Pavan Deolasee, Lead Engineer, EnterpriseDB

WHAT:   Bruce Momjian will highlight the ways in which the PostgreSQL
        community will meet software development and other challenges
        differently in the future. Future changes include moving beyond
        feature parity with other databases and focusing on performance
        improvements for single-session workloads.

        Pavan Deolasee will discuss the technical architecture of HOT
        (Heap-Only-Tuples), a key feature of PostgreSQL 8.3. HOT
        significantly increases the database's performance over long
        periods of time in update-intensive OLTP applications. Deolasee
        will discuss the internal architecture of HOT and the interesting
        technical challenges faced during HOT's development. He will also
        share HOT's performance statistics and limitations. HOT was
        conceived, designed, implemented, and shepherded through the
        PostgreSQL community development process by the EnterpriseDB team.
