Sun loses PostgreSQL lead

Author: JT Smith

Sun has been supporting the PostgreSQL database since at least November of 2005. A few months later they hired Josh Berkus, PostgreSQL core team member, as PostgreSQL Lead for Sun's Database Technology Group.

Since then a lot has happened at Sun -- notably it bought rival open source database MySQL for $1 billion. So now six months after the MySQL acquisition and two years after joining Sun, Berkus is leaving.
