Modernize applications and migrate expensive legacy databases to the IBM Cloud with the power of PostgreSQL and compatibility with Oracle. 

We are thrilled to announce the release of IBM Cloud Databases for EnterpriseDB (EDB) as a native constituent of the IBM Cloud platform for immediate consumption in all IBM Cloud multi-zone regions (MZRs). 

EDB PostgreSQL Advanced Server joins a broad suite of powerful database technologies on the IBM Cloud Databases platform as fully managed, production-ready, DBaaS built from the ground up for scale and security of enterprise workloads. 

EDB supercharges the PostgreSQL experience with security and performance features. According to John Murphy, EDB Senior VP of Products: “Offering EDB as a service on IBM Cloud is a great opportunity to extend the IBM ecosystem to current Postgres users. We’re looking forward to expanding our collaboration so more teams can feel the benefits of a fully integrated cloud experience.” 

A quick snapshot of provided features

  • Compatibility with Oracle: Offers compatibility for schemas, data types, indexes, users, roles, partitioning, packages, views, PL/SQL triggers, stored procedures, functions, and utilities.
  • Productivity boost: Over 200 prepackaged utility functions, user-defined object types, autonomous transactions, nested tables, synonyms, and advanced queueing.
  • Security: Password policy management, session tag auditing, data redaction, SQL injection protection, and procedural language code obfuscation.

Modernizing your data with IBM Cloud Databases like Databases for EnterpriseDB enables you to save costs, gain efficiencies, and power innovation for new applications. 

On top of all these features, Databases for EDB deploys automatically with the following: 

Serverless consumption model

Users are able to scale storage, RAM, and vCPU seamlessly and independently without being constrained by the limits of server sizes. There is no downtime for scaling events, allowing clients to start small and grow as their business grows on IBM Cloud or scale down operations for seasonal applications. The databases deploy in minutes, are billed hourly, and are a simple API call away. For more information on pricing, please review our examples

Microcontrollers vs. microprocessors: What’s the difference?

6 min read - Microcontroller units (MCUs) and microprocessor units (MPUs) are two kinds of integrated circuits that, while similar in certain ways, are very different in many others. Replacing antiquated multi-component central processing units (CPUs) with separate logic units, these single-chip processors are both extremely valuable in the continued development of computing technology. However, microcontrollers and microprocessors differ significantly in component structure, chip architecture, performance capabilities and application. The key difference between these two units is that microcontrollers combine all the necessary elements…

Seven top central processing unit (CPU) use cases

7 min read - The central processing unit (CPU) is the computer’s brain, assigning and processing tasks and managing essential operational functions. Computers have been so seamlessly integrated with modern life that sometimes we’re not even aware of how many CPUs are in use around the world. It’s a staggering amount—so many CPUs that a conclusive figure can only be approximated. How many CPUs are now in use? It’s been estimated that there may be as many as 200 billion CPU cores (or more)…
