Customers purchasing the EnterpriseDB bundle via RHX will receive technical support from Red Hat under a standardized Red Hat subscription agreement that covers all software available on RHX. 

“PostgreSQL, the foundation of EnterpriseDB Advanced Server, has long been a key component of the Red Hat Application Stack and has been appreciated by our customers for its proven reliability and enterprise-class feature set,” said Donald Fischer, vice president of Online Services at Red Hat. “We are excited to announce today's launch of RHX and the RHX-EnterpriseDB offering. This offering will appeal to customers that additionally require a high-performance database for demanding OLTP applications or that would benefit from EnterpriseDB’s Oracle compatibility.”
