Open source databases are 'unstoppable force'

Peter Parker writes "EnterpriseDB CEO Andy Astor saw potential in the PostgreSQL open source database. In fact, this company, which is only one year old, has bet the house on the technology, which has been developed and refined from its infancy at the hands of a few software engineers at Berkeley, Calif., over the course of the past 20 years.

Astor's company is releasing a beta version of EnterpriseDB this week. He recently spoke with, examining the future of the open source database, which he labels the 'unstoppable force' necessary to weaken the behemoths of the industry, including SQL Server and Oracle."
