A new press release states, “EnterpriseDB today launched Cloud Database Service, providing its enterprise-ready, EDB Postgres database with Oracle-compatible features now available as an on-demand service on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. Database users are able to provision Postgres instances or highly-available clusters on the cloud with point-in-time-recovery (PITR), load balancing and auto-scaling. Developers gain agility with the ability to set up and use EDB’s Oracle-compatible Postgres databases in minutes.”

Ed Boyajian, president and CEO of EnterpriseDB, noted, “No matter how our customers choose to deploy EDB Postgres, they have control of their data and the ability to shift to whatever deployment model they choose without the typical cloud vendor lock-in… When we combine EDB Cloud Database Service  with our recently introduced Migration Portal, we’re able to dramatically accelerate the migration process of converting from proprietary databases to EDB Postgres in the cloud or on-premises. Our Cloud Database Service brings even more value with enterprise features such as load balancing, automatic failover, secure data encryption and elastic scale out.”

The release adds, “EDB Postgres Advanced Server has the following built-in enterprise features relieving users from administrative tasks: Database compatibility with Oracle; Highly-available database clusters; Single instance configurations for developers; Database cloning to support development and QA (quality assurance) needs; Automatic load balancing; Automated failover; Automatic backups; Secure data encryption; User scheduled backups; Point-in-time recovery; Automated elastic scale-out and storage; Monitoring. The Cloud Database Service comes with pre-defined database instance templates that cover common configurations for developer, departmental, read-scale, production and enterprise use cases. Also, users can simply point-and-click to add or remove replicas.”
