[From EnterpriseDB Corporation
EDISON, N.J., May 23, 2005 - EnterpriseDB Corporation, an enterprise database company, emerged from stealth mode today and announced the immediate availability of EnterpriseDB 2005 (EDB2005) public beta release. Built on the open source PostgreSQL database, EDB2005 is an enterprise-class relational database management system that supports update-intensive, high-volume applications. In addition, EDB2005 is compatible with many applications written for Oracle databases. The free download and further information are available at the company's website, www.enterprisedb.com.
EDB2005 is built on PostgreSQL, the world's most advanced and mature open source database. PostgreSQL has been under continuous development for 20 years, and has been downloaded and implemented millions of times. For more than a decade, PostgreSQL has included such enterprise-class features as triggers and stored functions. Unlike some other open source databases, PostgreSQL assures data integrity and has the scalability and performance required for high-volume online transaction processing (OLTP). It is therefore widely regarded as a superior database for enterprise-class applications.
