EnterpriseDB Announces Enterprise-Ready Version of Postgres Platform 11

EDB Postgres 11 extends leading open source database management system with updated management, integration tools

Date -2018-12-13 Location - BEDFORD, Mass.

 EnterpriseDB announces the worldwide availability of EDB Postgres Platform 11 that includes Oracle database compatibility features, management and integration tools, providing organizations with high performance, enterprise-ready data management.


EDB Postgres 11 includes an updated version of EDB Postgres Advanced Server, which is built on and enhances the capabilities of open source PostgreSQL 11. PostgreSQL 11 comes with a number of new features and performance improvements that enable queries to run faster including partitioning, parallelism and just-in-time (JIT) compilation, along with finer-grained controls for specific permissions to users. Advanced Server 11 adds the following features providing enterprises with enhanced security, performance and reliability.

- Data redaction: Sensitive data, such as credit card information, can be concealed from designated users while privileged users can have access without restriction. This allows developers to secure information at the database level rather than in the application itself, making it easier to meet General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements and achieve greater levels of data privacy.

- Performance diagnostics: More detailed information about where time is being spent in the database server can be collected with minimal overhead. This information can then be searched to help diagnose bottlenecks and  tune queries to optimize application performance.

- Autonomous transactions: A capability that allows independent transactions to be executed without interfering with the parent transaction. This makes migrations from Oracle easier.


“The work going into Postgres from all corners of the world has, more than ever, made it the data management system of choice for a wide variety of workloads. Our customers are increasingly using EDB Postgres for data warehouses in analytics and Big Data applications to deliver new insights faster and make their teams smarter,” said Ed Boyajian, president and CEO of EnterpriseDB. “The new features in EDB Postgres 11 help customers expand their use of our technology platform even further.”
