Date -2011-08-09  Postgres Plus Advanced Server enables coresystems to manage up to 700 databases and 200k users running                                                                Amazon  Web Services in two data centers

BEDFORD, Mass. – August 9, 2011 – EnterpriseDB, the leading worldwide provider of PostgreSQL and Oracle compatibility products and services, today announced that coresystems, the world leader in standardized additional solutions for SAP and Microsoft ERP and CRM applications, has chosen Postgres Plus Advanced Server as its backend database solution. The coresystems’ software runs in the Cloud using Linux on Amazon Web Services and is a full Java EE application using JBoss and Hibernate.

The company needed a reliable database to provide the most accurate information to field personnel. coresystems’ cloud suite operates as middleware between an organization’s ERP or CRM system. Synchronization is performed between the ERP/CRM system and a database, which supports mobile applications running on smart phones, tablets, and laptop computers.

Originally based on Ingres, coresystems elected to switch from Ingres to EnterpriseDB Postgres Plus Advanced Server.  Installation was simple and it was up and running quickly without any complicated tuning required.

"Postgres is a big step ahead in the area of development and administration tools," said Yves Senn, chief technology officer for Cloud Development at coresystems. “With EnterpriseDB Postgres Plus Advanced Server, coresystems is well positioned to meet its database needs now and in the future.”

Running on Amazon Web Services in two data centers, coresystems creates a new database for each customer to ensure their data is secure. Up to 700 databases may be running in one Amazon large instance.  A database for management users, subscriptions, and other metadata is also present.  As a cloud-based solution, quick and easy provisioning is imperative and Postgres Plus' simple installation and configuration coupled with easy to use tools from Amazon avoid extra implementation costs.  Provisioning is fully automated with a simple sign-up form and download of the easy to install connector, all of which can be performed in less than 20 minutes.

“Postgres Plus Advanced Server provides coresystems with a high performance, scalable, cost effective database backed by the finest service and support available built to handle mobile ERP and CRM applications,” said Karen Padir, vice president of products and marketing at EnterpriseDB. “coresystems’ switch to EnterpriseDB gave them the enhanced database performance to perform several synchronizations each day at a volume EnterpriseDB could handle.”
