Which Postgres is Right for Me?
In the past 20 years the Postgres community has grown a considerable amount and has produced an enterprise-class relational database management system (RDBMS) that is commoditizing the database market. With such growth the Postgres community needed to establish a relationship with a commercial company to provide traditional enterprise packaging and services expected by corporate developers and IT organizations accustomed to working with enterprise-class software solutions.
The Postgres community collaborated with EnterpriseDB Corporation to address these needs and to provide the features, services, and support needed by many enterprise development organizations. This long term collaboration produced three Postgres product options – each designed to meet the various needs of both corporate developers and individuals seeking the freedom and flexibility to implement their own customized database management system: PostgreSQL, Postgres Plus Standard Server and Postgres Plus Advanced Server
Choosing one of these options can at first seem difficult, but this paper discusses the differences between PostgreSQL, Postgres Plus Standard Server and Postgres Plus Advanced Server. You'll learn enough about the different capabilities, modules, and uses for each product to make the best Postgres choice for your organization.
