(Other stories by Stephen Shankland)
This article maintains that the new Great Bridge PostgresSQL release, made yesterday, is priced to counter Red Hat's recent move into the database business with its own Postgres offering... a move conceived after Postgres turned down an earlier partnership offer.
"The new pricing comes shortly after Red Hat, the top seller of the Linux operating system and a powerhouse in the world of open-source software, announced its own entry into the database market. Red Hat approached Great Bridge as a potential business partner, but Great Bridge didn't like the terms of the deal, and now the two companies are competitors.
