A New Enterprise Database Option

EnterpriseDB launched Monday with a public beta release of its first product, EnterpriseDB 2005, offering out-of-the-box compatibility with applications written for Oracle databases.

EnterpriseDB 2005 (EDB2005) is built on the open-source PostgreSQL database but adds proprietary features targeted to enterprise customers. The EDB product includes EDB Database Server, the RDBMS engine, EDB Studio, a graphical console for developers and DBAs, and EDB Connectors, which provide access to EDB from JDBC, ODBC, .NET, ESQL/C++, PHP, Perl and Python.

”MySQL has been the only game in town, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best game for enterprise use,” EDB CEO Andy Astor said. ”Our product is better because it’s more enterprise class. It handles data integrity, performance and transactions better, and it also has compatibility with standards that are in corporate America today.”

In October, MySQL made version 4.1 of its software publicly available. MySQL is available under two licenses, a free download under the General Public License, or a $595 per server commercial license that includes deployment services.

Astor said that while MySQL supports the ANSI SQL standard, the market-leading database products from Microsoft, Oracle and IBM aren’t that close to ANSI.
