EnterpriseDB, a global Postgres-based database platform provider, has updated its brand to better reflect its mission to bring PostgreSQL to more organizations. The rebrand includes a name change to EDB fueled by a company transformation that would convey a steadfast commitment to help organizations accelerate innovation using PostgreSQL.
“Postgres is bigger than any one company. It’s a movement. Our new tagline, ‘Power to Postgres,’ captures both the spirit of that movement and our commitment to it,” said Ed Boyajian, President and CEO of EDB. “We’re database fanatics, and for our customers, a trusted partner with the energy and expertise to supercharge Postgres and help them overcome their challenges.”
EDB also extends PostgreSQL through a network of global partnerships. For example, last year, EDB began partnering with IBM to offer EDB Postgres Advanced Server (EPAS) as part of the IBM Data Management Platform. In an expansion of their partnership, the companies recently announced that EPAS will be available as a Database-as-a-Service (DaaS) on IBM Cloud within the next few weeks.
“EDB is a key strategic partner, further enriching the IBM Cloud ecosystem and helping us offer the best database technologies,” said Phil Buckellew, General Manager, IBM Cloud Platform. “EDB is committed to helping organizations get more from Postgres. This is vital as IBM Cloud seeks to provide even greater support for the open source community and further drive open innovation.”
EDB’s enterprise-oriented software extends PostgreSQL, helping their customers get the most out of it both on premises and in the cloud. With 16 offices worldwide, EDB serves over 4,000 customers, including leading financial services, government, media and communications, and information technology organizations.
