PostgreSQL Inc. Teams Up with Fitcom Srl,
and the PgMarket Storefront Solution

"PostgreSQL, the world's most advanced Open Source Database, is rapidly
becoming the web and internet business database of choice," notes Geoff
Davidson, CEO of PostgreSQL, Inc., "and Fitcom Srl of Italy has been at
the forefront of storefront applications development that is 'Powered by

Today Fitcom has joined our elite network of PostgreSQL, Inc. Platinum
Certified Alliance Program (CAP) Partners, providing Fitcom's clients with
access to all our programs, and ensuring PgMarket is a product that can be
fully supported by any of our partners worldwide."

Fitcom offers business application development centered around it's
PgMarket "" shopping cart and storefront solution.
"PgMarket has been developed around PostgreSQL because of its unmatched
performance, features, price, and scalability. It is the best possible
database for enterprise e-commerce." states Giovanni Di Loreto, Fitcom's
Founder. "PostgreSQL, Inc. is the leading company providing commercial
support, and joining forces with them will ensure we can increase the use
of PgMarket worldwide, as well as provide all PgMarket customers with
unequaled support for all their enterprise database and e-commerce needs."

"Small companies have long recognized the cost advantages of PostgreSQL,
and have been able to put market pressure on many big companies by
offering as much, or more, in the way of online products and services to
customers anywhere in the world. Not surprisingly, this has led to many
large enterprises starting to question the high costs of their current IT
solutions, and the even higher costs of keeping up with the rapid changes
in technology". Davidson observes, "One of the most costly of the current
IT applications are databases, which have largely been dominated by a few
industry giants.

PostgreSQL now offers even the largest enterprise unmatched savings in
software - it's free - as well as huge savings in hardware, all without
sacrificing capabilities, performance or scalability."
