Partnership Enables CustomWare to Deliver Low-Cost, Enterprise-Class Database Solutions to its Clients

ISELIN, N.J., May 9, 2007 – EnterpriseDB, maker of the world’s most affordable enterprise-class database, announced today its partnership with CustomWare, a provider of systems integration and portal development services headquartered in Sydney, Australia. CustomWare will integrate EnterpriseDB Advanced Server into solutions it provides to its customers throughout the Asia Pacific region.

"CustomWare's partnership with EnterpriseDB allows us to focus on delivering low-cost, enterprise-class solutions to our clients," said Deborah Brook, chief executive officer, CustomWare. "We're not only integrating EnterpriseDB Advanced Server into the solutions we deliver for our clients. We have transitioned our own internal operations to run entirely on EnterpriseDB as well. The move of our project tracking, wiki and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems to EnterpriseDB was seamless and we have seen a great improvement in performance as a result."

EnterpriseDB has enhanced PostgreSQL, the world's most advanced open source database, to create the award-winning, Oracle-compatible EnterpriseDB Advanced Server. The enterprise-class database can run applications written for Oracle unchanged enabling organizations to save up to 80% of their database total cost of ownership. Automated migration of data in MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase databases is also supported. EnterpriseDB also offers a comprehensive suite of tools for developers and DBAs and world-class, around-the-clock technical support.

"EnterpriseDB is pleased to announce this partnership with CustomWare," said Roger Durn, general manager, Asia Pacific, EnterpriseDB. "CustomWare's proven success delivering integrated systems and portal solutions for its enterprise clients make them an ideal partner for us in the region. Their ability to now offer an enterprise-class alternative to Oracle will provide significant cost savings to clients without compromising database performance or capability."
