Posted on 2005-11-17

Today, Sun announced that they would be supporting and shipping PostgreSQL

as a part of Solaris distribution. The press release is available on the Sun website.

This should come as no surprise to the hackers in our community who've

noticed an increasing number of @sun.com addresses on the pgsql-hackers

list in the last few months. Sun's support for PostgreSQL will involve:

help in optimizing for Solaris; DTrace; Solaris packages; sponsorship of

community members and projects; and direct contributions/advice from Sun

engineers on database performance. More later as this stuff actually

gets rolling.

I think everyone in PostgreSQL.org will agree with me that Sun is a very welcome

addition to our community of corporate supporters.
