Law Enforcement, Military, Government and Intelligence Agency Supplier Benefits from Open Source Database’s Speed, Stability, and Low Cost
ISELIN, N.J., Apr. 21, 2006 – EnterpriseDB, the world’s leading enterprise–class, open source database company, announced today that Perlustro, the global leader in law enforcement digital evidence analysis, will integrate EnterpriseDB Advanced Server into its ILook Investigator Forensic Software (ILook), a comprehensive suite of computer forensics tools used to acquire and analyze digital media. ILook’s development is supported by the IRS Criminal Investigation Division, and it is provided free to federal, state, and local law enforcement, the military, and intelligence agencies, where it is used for all types of digital investigations. For more information, visit www.ILook–forensics.org. More information about EnterpriseDB and free downloads of EnterpriseDB Advanced Server, the company’s flagship product, are available at www.enterprisedb.com
Perlustro considered both open source and proprietary database solutions and selected EnterpriseDB for its affordability, speed, reliable file integrity, and support for 64–bit computing. EnterpriseDB will enable ILook users to conduct queries rapidly on large databases and will provide them with the stability and predictability that their mission–critical needs demand.
“In our opinion, EnterpriseDB is the only truly commercial–grade open source database available, and it’s the only one we would consider for use in this high–stakes environment,“ said Elliot Spencer, CEO of Perlustro. “Other vendors’ open source database offerings are simply too slow and susceptible to irreparable data corruption to be serious choices for applications like ours. EnterpriseDB has made a substantial contribution to law enforcement worldwide with their assistance in ILook’s development.“
