About Indiana State University

Founded in 1865 in Terre Haute, Indiana, Indiana State University serves nearly 14,000 undergraduates and graduate students. With over 100 undergraduate majors and more than 75 graduate and professional programs. Indiana State is considered a highly sought after "D/PU: Doctoral/Professional University.”



Following a successful migration of its tuition benefits and tracking system—allowing them to provide and manage financial aid and veteran tuition assistance—from Oracle to Postgres, Indiana State University knew they would need help maintaining their new database. Without that help, they would not be able to guarantee consistent performance and database availability, making it harder to access the systems they had just migrated.



Encouraged by EDB’s reputation as an enterprise Postgres leader, Indiana State University decided to invest in EDB Support, providing them with 24/7 access to Postgres experts who could ensure their database was ‘Always On,’ always performant and that any hiccups were swiftly and thoroughly addressed.



Thanks to EDB Support, Indiana State University has been able to experience the full power of Postgres, and manage systems that are vital to its administration and student body. With the promise of database performance and high availability, EDB support has benefited all of Indiana State University’s mission-critical applications, such as access management. In fact, their ongoing success with Postgres has become a major part of their identity among universities!
