ISELIN, N.J., Aug. 2, 2007 – EnterpriseDB, the Oracle-compatible database company, today announced that it has been selected as a finalist in two categories for the LinuxWorld Product Excellence Awards. EnterpriseDB Advanced Server 8.2 is a finalist in the Best Database Solution category for the third straight year, and GridSQL for EnterpriseDB Advanced Server is a finalist in the Grid Computing Solution category. EnterpriseDB Advanced Server has won the award for Best Database Solution for the past two years at LinuxWorld.

EnterpriseDB Advanced Server 8.2, the company's flagship product, is an enterprise-class relational database management system (RDBMS) that is compatible with applications written for Oracle.
