I am delighted to share that today, we announced the general availability of BigAnimal, EDB’s fully managed PostgreSQL database in the cloud.
This is a monumental achievement for our company and Postgres. BigAnimal is the culmination of 15 years of our singular commitment to building Postgres and bringing its full power to the enterprise. This could only have happened through the efforts of the world's largest, most talented team of Postgres experts and engineers.
In our many conversations with customers, they were clear about what was missing from existing PostgreSQL offerings. They’re looking to move off of Oracle, put their most demanding and serious workloads in the cloud, and take advantage of the flexibility and scalability that those environments have to offer. With BigAnimal, we took everything we learned and delivered a transformational technology that allows enterprises to fully move all of their applications to the cloud.
BigAnimal goes way beyond the basics. We're not just operating your cloud Postgres database - we're the builders. Big Animal brings our unique compatibility with Oracle database technology, extreme high availability, and deep Postgres expertise to Microsoft Azure for the first time. We run it for you inside your own account, giving you ultimate control to tune and configure the database to your needs and leverage your spend commitments.
We are experiencing a remarkable wave of technology innovation, and Postgres is at the center. Postgres changed the equation when enterprises began re-platforming from proprietary databases to the cloud. Now EDB is leading the biggest step forward yet with BigAnimal as companies look to propel their business forward and unleash the full potential of their data in the cloud.
BigAnimal is the beginning of a new era of Postgres.
Power to Postgres.
