IBM Cloud Expands Database Ecosystem with New Partners

The Growth of PostgreSQL as a Tier-1 RDBMS

With open source technology pervasive across the IT industry coupled with the ever-increasing need to optimize your application workloads with fit-for-purpose database technologies, it has been part of IBM’s longstanding cloud database strategy to provide our clients with a variety of the most popular open source databases.

Over the past decade, not only has IBM participated in and promoted the open source database market evolution (and this year we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of IBM first proposing the SQL Relational Model), we’ve also recognized how many of the vendors behind these technologies have come to formulate and evolve their business models in light of these trends in the database market.
