Recently, I published Compatibilty wars - can EnterpriseDB take on Oracle and win? to examine EnterpriseDB's move to take advantage of Oracle halting support of Itanium-based systems. Sean Doherty, EnterpriseDB's VP of Business Development, reached out to me to present his company's response. Since I think that he makes a number of really good points, I asked his permission to publish it in full. Thanks for reaching out, Sean.
