EnterpriseDB Announces Bailout Program for Besieged Oracle Customers

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From EnterpriseDB]

WESTFORD, Mass., August 3, 2009 - EnterpriseDB, the leading enterprise-class open source database company, today announced an Oracle Migration Assessment Program designed to aid the thousands of companies locked into the Oracle database and related products who face a constant drumbeat of price increases from the vendor.

EnterpriseDB created the Oracle Migration Assessment Program after Oracle recently raised prices on database modules by as much as 40 percent. This comes on the heels of license increases of up to 20 percent in 2008. The program enables enterprises to migrate their applications running on Oracle to Postgres Plus Advanced Server, an open source PostgreSQL based database containing an Oracle compatibility layer, with no disruption to operations, and delivers ongoing cost savings of 50 percent or more.
