EnterpriseDB, the leading worldwide provider of PostgreSQL and Oracle
database compatibility products and services, today announced the
general availability of Postgres Plus® Cloud Database on Amazon Web
Services.  Postgres Plus Cloud Database is a full-featured,
enterprise-class PostgreSQL database-as-a-service (DBaaS).
EnterpriseDB also announced today that CloudBees and Engine Yard have

Postgres Plus Cloud Database dramatically simplifies the setup and
configuration of PostgreSQL in the cloud.  In addition to support for
Amazon EC2, EnterpriseDB has worked with HP to ensure Postgres Plus
Cloud Database will run well with HP Cloud Compute.  HP Cloud Compute
currently leverages the OpenStack Nova compute platform and API.

"Postgres Plus Cloud Database is the only solution on the market today
that makes deploying new instances of PostgreSQL or Postgres Plus
Advanced Server easy in any environment,” said Ed Boyajian, President
and CEO of EnterpriseDB.  “And, through our partnerships with industry
leaders CloudBees, Engine Yard, HP and OpenStack, customers will have
numerous ways to take advantage of PostgreSQL ‘elastically’ on
multiple cloud platforms.”

Postgres Plus Cloud Database combines the advantages of cloud
computing with the features expected in an enterprise-class database,

* Fully ACID compliant relational database service
* Point-and-click simple setup & management with web-based interface
* Automatic scaling, load balancing and failover
* Automated online backup and point-in-time recovery
* Database Cloning
* Oracle database compatibility
* Postgres Plus Cloud Database is available now with two versions of
its cloud database:  PostgreSQL 9.1, and Postgres Plus Advanced Server
9.0. Pricing for Postgres Plus Cloud Database on Amazon Web Services
is the same as Amazon RDS (MySQL), whether you choose the PostgreSQL
or Postgres Plus Advanced Server database engine.

Supporting quotes:


“With Postgres Plus Cloud Database on the CloudBees Java Platform, our
developers can easily build applications that invoke a truly elastic
database knowing that Postgres is always backed up and available, but
without the hassles of database administration,” said Sacha Labourey,
CEO and Founder of CloudBees.  “Plus, EnterpriseDB and CloudBees both
provide innovative, cloud-based scale-out architectures, which are
expected in premier database and application platforms.”

Engine Yard

“We’re very pleased to have EnterpriseDB offer Postgres Plus Cloud
Database to developers running apps on Engine Yard Cloud,” said Mike
Piech, VP, Product Management and Marketing at Engine Yard. “Postgres
Plus Cloud Database will enable our mutual customers to provision both
multi-host PostgreSQL and Postgres Plus Advanced Server clusters
easily and efficiently.”

Red Hat

“Elasticity and horizontal scaling are critical characteristics for
cloud applications, which make Postgres Plus even more attractive for
applications in the cloud,” said Brian Stevens, CTO and VP, Worldwide
Engineering at Red Hat. “As a leading provider of cloud platforms and
infrastructure, we are excited to see enhanced innovation and choice
for cloud developers and users.”

451 Research

“We have recently seen a surge of interest in PostgreSQL driven by its
potential for deployment in the cloud,” said Matt Aslett, Research
Manager, Data Management and Analytics, 451 Research.  “With the
addition of auto-data size elasticity and horizontal scaling in
Postgres Plus Cloud Database, EnterpriseDB has re-introduced
PostgreSQL as a database platform for the creation and delivery of
private, public and hybrid cloud services, as opposed to simply a
database running in the cloud.”

Voices Heard Media

“We needed a low touch solution that was easy to use and could
elastically scale PostgreSQL in the cloud,” said Mark Baird, Director
of IT at Voices Heard Media. “Tasks such as load balancing,
auto-scaling of the cluster, auto backup and auto-failover can be
extremely difficult to get configured correctly, but with Postgres
Cloud Database you get all of this right out of the box.”


“With Postgres Plus Cloud Database, EnterpriseDB brings a welcome
addition to cloud-based services,” said Larry Bolick, CIO, Aquent.
“As satisfied customers of EnterpriseDB for the past two years, we
have been running Postgres Plus Advanced Server on virtual servers
worldwide and have been eagerly awaiting a version available natively
in the cloud.”

Burris Logistics

“With Postgres Plus Cloud Database, EnterpriseDB changes how we should
think about database services in the cloud.  Their solution has
reduced much of the admin effort, and all of the infrastructure work
out of database installation and configuration. It almost seems too
easy,” said Ed Krupka, CIO, Burris Logistics. “Postgres Plus Cloud
Database is so innovative, especially with its auto-data size
elasticity and horizontal scaling. It’s poised to make PostgreSQL the
de facto database for the cloud.”
