Unlimited subscription of open source database provides enterprise users with guaranteed cost-certainty

WESTFORD, Mass. - June 1, 2010 - EnterpriseDB, the enterprise Postgres company, today announced the immediate availability of a new unlimited enterprise subscription option for its Postgres Plus Standard Server database in order to meet the demand created in part by the recent consolidation in the database market. The unlimited subscription, which is being offered for a limited time, provides organizations an opportunity to deploy the industry's only enterprise-class open source relational database management system that is capable of handling high transaction applications and is well proven to perform in cloud and virtualized computing environments.

Today enterprises are faced with uncertainty brought on by a variety of market conditions including the recent consolidation in the database market, a rapidly expanding volume of enterprise data, and the adoption of virtualization as a platform norm. These factors are causing organizations to reevaluate their data management solutions in search of a highly scalable and cost-effective platform. While open source has long been a cost-effective alternative to expensive proprietary databases, until now there hasn't been an enterprise-class open source database available with an unlimited subscription model.

"Our research has shown that cost is the primary driver for open source software adoption but that flexibility is the biggest benefit for businesses after adoption," said Matt Aslett, senior analyst, Enterprise Software at The 451 Group. "Unlimited subscription offerings, such as the one offered by EnterpriseDB, provide a level of cost-certainty combined with licensing simplification to help organizations struggling with managing and containing costs, as well as licensing complexity."

The new subscription offer, which allows organizations to deploy an unlimited number of sockets for Postgres Plus Standard Server, is available for a limited time for a fixed price of $40,000 per year.

Subscription highlights include:

  • Unlimited number of sockets for Postgres Plus Standard Server
  • High productivity tools:
    • Postgres Plus HQ Monitoring
    • xDB Oracle Replication Server
  • Software updates in one-click installers (no downloading, configuring, building or testing of source code required)
  • Technical support from PostgreSQL experts with access to community leaders and contributors
  • Visibility into and influence over product roadmaps

"The demand for Postgres has never been stronger," said Karen Tegan Padir, vice president of products and marketing at EnterpriseDB. "We provide open source database solutions as an alternative to expensive proprietary offerings. Now with unlimited pricing of Postgres Plus Standard Server, customers benefit from overall savings and cost-certainty while their data needs can continue to grow."
