Collaboration creates massive new on-ramp for Postgres into enterprise software infrastructures
Bedford, MA – April 16, 2014 – EnterpriseDB (EDB), the leading worldwide provider of enterprise-class Postgres products and Oracle database compatibility solutions, today announced its flagship Postgres Plus Advanced Server plays a critical role in advancing open source based alternatives for enterprises. Postgres Plus Advanced Server comprises the database layer of a multi-tier open technology stack optimized for Infor LN, a market-leading solution provided by Infor, the third-largest ERP software provider worldwide.
Infor today announced the three-way collaboration of Infor, EnterpriseDB and Red Hat to deliver its Infor LN with Postgres Plus Advanced Server, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat’s JBoss Enterprise Middleware.
The availability of an ERP solution from a major provider that has certified the performance and compatibility of Postgres with its solution clears a major hurdle in the widespread adoption of Postgres across the enterprise. The new solution also brings huge cost savings and greater flexibility for end users. With Infor LN and Postgres Plus Advanced Server, the total cost of ownership for end users is just 20 percent (or less) of the cost of a proprietary stack. In addition, eliminating proprietary providers gives end users greater flexibility to deploy the solution on-premise or in the cloud and to make hardware and infrastructure modernization decisions without having to pay significantly more for the underlying software.
