I don't know how big our name is, but IHS, or Information Handling 
Services has been in the information industry for over 40 years, starting 
with paper indexes to catalogs, and moving into specs and standards, 
parametric data, and dozens of other catagories.

While our big financial and online databases are all mainframe / idms / 
cics or Solaris / Oracle, we are using postgresql more and more for 
internal projects and are quite happy with it.  So far it is slowly 
pushing out MSSQL server and the other smaller backend databases, mainly 
because it is stable, fast, and free, the three mythical qualities you can 
only get two of most of the time.

I'm not in marketing, and I don't speak for IHS as a company, I'm just one 
of the trained web monkeys / postgresql dbas working in the back shop 
here, so it's probably best to just say we use it for internal projects 
and such on the web.
