EnterpriseDB Open Sources GridSQL
Powerful Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing Solution Enables Enterprises to Seamlessly Leverage Clusters of Commodity Hardware; GridSQL Now Available on SourceForge Under GPLv2 License
EnterpriseDB separately announced today that IBM has joined existing investors as part of a $10 million Series C venture capital round and that the new Postgres Plus family of enterprise-class RDMBS products is immediately available for download at www.enterprisedb.com/products/download.do.
"EnterpriseDB continues to drive open source innovation in the data management field," said Bob Zurek, chief technology officer, EnterpriseDB. "GridSQL is the most robust open source information management grid technology on the market today. Our decision to open source GridSQL will allow this powerful and exciting technology to thrive. With GridSQL, EnterpriseDB extends its recognized technology leadership among open source databases from OLTP to the business intelligence and data warehousing realms."
GridSQL is fully integrated with EnterpriseDB s Postgres Plus and Postgres Plus Advanced Server databases and also works with the community-based PostgreSQL project. Using GridSQL, database performance scales nearly linearly as additional servers are added to the grid. To simplify management, GridSQL includes a robust suite of graphical management and monitoring tools that enable DBAs to monitor the entire grid from a single console.
Because GridSQL uses true grid technology that distributes data and shares computing resources at the database layer, existing database applications run unchanged and application developers can create new applications as if they were accessing a single database on a single server. The complexity of distributing a query to all the databases in a grid, gathering and collating the resulting information, and returning a single response to the requester is transparently handled by GridSQL.
