Simplify the enterprise PostgreSQL experience

EDB, in partnership with IBM, offers a single source for purchase, deployment and support of EDB Postgres Enterprise and Standard editions based on PostgreSQL. This one-stop experience better positions you to develop and run applications on a secure, enterprise-class database based on open source PostgreSQL.

If you are thinking about moving your Oracle workloads to the cloud, an open source platform such as EDB Postgres can help with the complexity. With some Oracle-like features, the Postgres solution from IBM and EDB offers several advantages to help you meet mission-critical requirements.

Flexible deployment

Deploy and integrate across any environment needed by your business: cloud — public, private and hybrid; virtualized, containers and bare metal.

Improved productivity

Benefit from developer-friendly support for the latest programming languages and IDEs, such as JavaScript, JSON, Python, XML, Ruby, PostGIS, Node.js and SQL.

Support for multiple data types

Use your data type of choice. Whether it’s JSON, geospatial, XML, key-value, or most other structured, semi-structured or unstructured data, EDB Postgres handles it natively.

Cost benefits

Gain significant cost savings while maintaining high quality standards by using open source software in an enterprise-class platform.

Feature spotlights

Enterprise security

EDB delivers security on par with other leading database management systems through ANSI SQL GRANT and REVOKE; external authentication support for LDAP, PAM and Kerberos; granular object permissions; operational auditing; virtual private database; and protection against SQL injection attacks and passwords policies.

Advanced performance for mission-critical workloads

EDB introduces several features to improve and diagnose performance. In addition to open source PostgreSQL partitioning, advanced partitioning capabilities enable smarter, faster partition pruning. Resource Manager allows DBAs to ensure business-critical transactions have resource priority over other workloads. Dynamic Runtime Instrumentation Tools Architecture (DRITA) analyzes low-level system and session wait events to identify bottlenecks, thus improving database and query performance.

Database compatibility to minimize migration efforts

EDB natively understands and processes existing PL/SQL programs and data without any translation layers and without long, costly consulting engagements. EDB compatibility means your expectations for performance are preserved, your intellectual capital is protected and your staff can continue using their existing skill set, while still embracing technology.

DBA and developer features

In addition to the performance and security enhancements, EDB also boosts DBA productivity by providing tools and functionality such as EDB*Loader and extended catalog views. Twenty-one function packages with over 250 functions, bulk collect/bind, user-defined object types, nested tables and many other capabilities reduce programming effort and provide faster processing to support developers.
