AWS is pleased to announce the release of Babelfish for PostgreSQL.

What is Babelfish?

Babelfish for PostgreSQL is a dual licensed, Apache-2.0 and PostgreSQL, open source project that adds additional syntax, functions, data types, and more to PostgreSQL to help in the migration from SQL Server. It includes a network end-point added to PostgreSQL to enable your PostgreSQL database to understand the SQL Server wire protocol and commonly used SQL Server commands. With Babelfish, applications that were originally built for SQL Server can work directly with PostgreSQL, with little to no code changes, and without changing database drivers.

For more information, please see our launch announcement.

You can view and download the source code on GitHub.
