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
I think everyone in PostgreSQL.org will agree with me that Sun is a very welcome
addition to our community of corporate supporters.
