EnterpriseDB Creates Tool for Moving Oracle Databases to EDB Postgres Platform

EnterpriseDB, developer of a Postgres-based database platform, is releasing the beta version of its EDB Postgres Migration Portal, an automated online tool for moving Oracle databases to the EDB Postgres Platform.

The Migration Portal is the centerpiece of recent releases that makes it easier for users to run EDB Postgres everywhere – whether an on-premises data center, private or public cloud computing platform.

In addition, the company has developed new features in EDB Postgres Ark and EDB Postgres Containers that facilitate both on-premises and cloud deployments.

The combination of multiple deployment models along with portability to move workloads enables EDB customers to have the same Postgres experience no matter what platform they choose.

"While the cloud is growing in importance to our customers, at the same time they want the flexibility to operate their Postgres databases anywhere with the same high level of performance and dependability,” said Ed Boyajian, president and CEO of EnterpriseDB. “We’re stepping up the pace of change and innovation, so customers can move their traditional databases to EDB Postgres, plus delivering new features in Ark and Containers that enable Postgres to run everywhere."

The announced updates to EDB Postgres Ark deliver self-service database provisioning and management. It enables organizations to deploy and scale EDB Postgres databases on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or OpenStack cloud platforms.

Now, EDB Ark adds templates – defined configurations – that provide greater flexibility along with control over database resources by implementing policies that include storage allocation, backups, user access, server class and more.

As another option, EDB Postgres Containers enable organizations with large-scale implementations to operate the EDB Postgres Platform on-premises or in the cloud – especially useful for scaling up or scaling down to accommodate needs in development or production.

With new packaging, deployment is simplified in three containers for data management/high availability, read scalability and disaster recovery. The disaster recovery capability is newly added using the EDB Postgres Backup and Recovery Tool (BART).

With EDB Containers, organizations can deploy and operate the EDB Postgres Platform with any Kubernetes-based container orchestration platform, including Red Hat OpenShift, IBM Private Cloud, or Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS). The containers can run as a clustered solution using shared storage with high availability, read scaling and monitoring.

EDB Containers are included at no additional cost for EDB Postgres Platform subscription customers.
