Basic and Premium Support Packages Available for PostgreSQL; New Subscription Offerings Available for EnterpriseDB Advanced Server
ISELIN, N.J., Jan. 17, 2007 – EnterpriseDB, maker of the world’s most affordable enterprise-class database, announced today the immediate availability of technical support packages for PostgreSQL, the world's most advanced open source database. Pricing for these packages begins at just $1,000 per CPU per year. EnterpriseDB is the world's largest provider of PostgreSQL-based products and services. Sun Microsystems, which distributes PostgreSQL with its Solaris operating system, has already selected EnterpriseDB for PostgreSQL support and training.
EnterpriseDB also announced today changes to the subscription offerings available for its Oracle-compatible EnterpriseDB Advanced Server relational database management system (RDBMS). Pricing begins at just $1,500 per CPU per year. EnterpriseDB Advanced Server, which is built on PostgreSQL and runs many applications written for Oracle without change, costs far less than Oracle. An interactive, graphical savings calculator is available at http://www.enterprisedb.com/solutions/calculator to help enterprises to estimate the savings they would realize by deploying EnterpriseDB instead of Oracle.
PostgreSQL Support Packages
EnterpriseDB has two technical support packages available for PostgreSQL users. The PostgreSQL Basic Support package, which costs $1,000 per CPU per year, provides certified binaries, web- and email-based technical support during local business hours, and access to the company's knowledge base and user forums. The PostgreSQL Premium Support package, which costs $3,000 per CPU per year, adds 24x7 phone-, email-, and web-based technical support, a one-time PostgreSQL tuning service, optional additional PostgreSQL tuning services, and an optional dedicated technical account manager.
