NoSQL Solution Users to Learn the Benefits of Postgres

Date -2015-08-18 Location - BEDFORD, Mass. EnterpriseDB (EDB), the leading provider of enterprise-class Postgres products and database compatibility solutions, today announced the company will emphasize helping end users leverage the NoSQL capabilities of Postgres during technical sessions at NoSQL Now 2015.

The annual event in San Jose, Calif. starts today and runs through Thursday. It brings together data scientists, database administrators and architects as well as CIOs and business executives to exchange ideas, best practices and techniques for working with the NoSQL database solution category. Postgres has advanced to feature critical NoSQL capabilities, giving end users the choice to handle unstructured data with an ACID-compliant relational database. When the use case calls for a dedicated NoSQL-only solution, Postgres can still integrate with the data using a feature called a Foreign Data Wrapper.

EDB speakers will be addressing the features and capabilities in Postgres for working with unstructured data and the variables surrounding their deployment during two technical sessions:

  • PostgreSQL at the Center of Everyone’s Data World at 1:30 on Wednesday, Aug. 19, with Bruce Momjian explaining Foreign Data Wrappers and how they are used to integrate data from NoSQL solution deployments into Postgres relational tables using the JSON data type.

Relational databases are continuing to advance to incorporate NoSQL capabilities. In its Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems, Gartner said, “By 2017, all leading operational DBMSs will offer multiple data models, relational and NoSQL, in a single platform.” EDB was positioned in the Leaders Quadrants in that 2014 Magic Quadrant.

“Postgres is the most advanced open source database and the community has continued to ensure that, enhancing the technology as new use cases emerge,” said Pierre Fricke, Vice President, Product Marketing, EnterpriseDB. “NoSQL-only solutions like document or key/value stores may have their place, but users need to understand what Postgres can achieve when making deployment decisions.”

EDB will present a webinar on Postgres NoSQL, titled NoSQL on ACID – Meet Unstructured Postgres, on Sept. 10 at 8 am EDT and 1 pm EDT.
