Cloud customer Egraphs taps Postgres in the cloud, frees team for product development
BEDFORD, Mass. – June 27, 2012 – EnterpriseDB, the leading worldwide provider of PostgreSQL and Oracle database compatibility products and services, today announced that more than 2,300 users have explored the enterprise-class features and capabilities of its Postgres Plus Cloud Database to cut costs, expand services and speed applications to market.
EnterpriseDB Cloud Database customer Egraphs, a startup in the entertainment industry preparing for its official launch, tapped the new cloud offering to ensure that from day one the company could rely on cutting-edge technology, high levels of performance and database resilience.
“Our team spent just a few hours getting up and running, leaving us with more time to develop and fine-tune our core products,” William Chan, a software engineer at Egraphs, said. “EnterpriseDB’s Remote DBA team and the cloud database did the heavy lifting setting up replication and backups.”
“Enterprises today are seeking opportunities to leverage the cloud and the huge demand we’ve generated is more proof that we found a winning recipe with Postgres Plus Cloud Database,” Ed Boyajian, president and CEO of EnterpriseDB, said. “With Postgres optimized for a cloud environment, we alone deliver the data portability and mobility, scalability and elasticity, ease-of-use and lower costs that are all the expectations of cloud computing.”
Postgres Plus Cloud Database was released for general availability in late January. Offered on multiple cloud environments, the database represents an enterprise-class Database-as-a-Service for businesses seeking the dynamic, cost-effective capabilities of PostgreSQL as well as the ease and ubiquity of a cloud environment.
“Cloud databases offer on-demand data management best suited to new types of applications that need to minimize cost… ” wrote Noel Yuhanna, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, Inc. “Application developers often find it challenging to test their code because of a lack of database resources… and DBAs have trouble responding quickly enough to requests for new test databases. This not only slows the development and delivery process but also affects business users who need fast provisioning of database resources.” *
