Bedford, Mass. May 17, 2022 – EDB, the world leader in accelerating Postgres® in the enterprise, announced the general availability of EDB BigAnimal™ on Amazon Web Services (AWS), in addition to its current availability on Microsoft Azure. BigAnimal, EDB’s fully managed Postgres cloud database service, gives database administrators, architects and others an enterprise Postgres solution combined with expert support and the freedom to choose where they deploy in the cloud. EDB is already the recognized leader in Postgres, offering Postgres solutions for on-premises, hybrid cloud and public cloud, across VMs or Kubernetes. With BigAnimal, EDB adds a fully managed Postgres cloud solution to its portfolio.

Organizations are increasingly adopting fully managed cloud services to gain freedom from routine overhead activities. For databases, enterprises seek flexible solutions that support their most critical applications, securely process their valuable data and allow them to run seamlessly in the cloud. As an independent Postgres provider, EDB responds to this need with BigAnimal. BigAnimal uniquely provides the most comprehensive Postgres service and support available, native compatibility with Oracle database technology and extreme high availability. It also gives businesses the freedom to choose or change their cloud provider, with the peace of mind that their customer data is secured within their own cloud tenant.

"Customers turn to EDB for our ability to build and support enterprise-grade Postgres solutions at a depth unsurpassed by other Postgres providers,” said Rich Kennelly, SVP of cloud sales and marketing for EDB. “With EDB BigAnimal in both Azure and AWS, we are responding to the demand for a fully managed Postgres solution that can be deployed when and where enterprises need it. This allows organizations to focus on applications that drive their business forward, while ensuring there are Postgres experts to tackle any complex database challenges.”
