With big thanks to Josh Berkus and Devrim Gunduz, I'm happy to announce 
that Sun has just released a Solaris distribution of PostgreSQL 8.1.2  
with ready-to-install packages for both Sparc and x86.  These packages 
are currently in Beta, and we expect to FCS in 2 -3 weeks.  The 
packages, along with an install guide, are available for download at

We have tightly integrated PostgreSQL with Solaris in a manner similar 
to the Linux distributions available on In fact, the 
directory structures are identical.  Starting with Solaris 10 Update 2, 
PostgreSQL will be distributed with every copy of Solaris, via download 
and physical media.

We welcome any and all feedback on this PostgreSQL Solaris 
distribution.   Please subscribe to the 
solarispackages-general(at)pgfoundry(dot)org mailing list to give us feedback:

BTW, I'm a senior engineer at Sun Microsystems, recently working with 
the PostgreSQL community (namely Josh Berkus, Devrim Gunduz, and Gavin 
Sherry) on the Solaris Packages Project at PgFoundry,  PostgreSQL 
performance optimization on Solaris, and leveraging Solaris 10 
capabilities (e.g. DTrace) specifically for PostgreSQL.  I'll be posting 
a Solaris performance tuning guide in a few weeks.
