Postgres had a defining day this week.

Infor announced Wednesday it has collaborated with EnterpriseDB and Red Hat to deliver its Infor LN solution on an open technology stack. This enables massively better economics and an expanded ability to move fluidly between on-premise and cloud deployments.

This kind of news is always easy to miss in the flood of headlines every day.  And from the outside looking in, it's hard to tell from partnership press releases which ones have real substance and which ones are just noise.

このニュースの内側から見て、私はこれが最近の出来事でPostgresにとってもっと重要なマイルストーンの1つであったと言えます。この動きにより、InforとEnterpriseDBはPostgresをITとデータセンターの中心に深く浸透させ、ERPの価格パフォーマンスの展望を変えました。

細かい点を言えば、既存のLN顧客にとっては、このオープンプラットフォームを使用してインフラストラクチャのソフトウェアコストの80%を節約することができます。 その節約額の90%はPostgres Plusデータベースによるものです。

And Infor’s certification assures users that Postgres Plus can power the most essential applications and workloads in IT.  That’s the substance of this news, which will come to be seen as a major milestone for Postgres.
