PostGres-XL released to tackle big data analytics and more

As a step to bring some modern enhancements to PostGres, TransLattice today announced the open sourcing of Postgres-XL based on the technology it acquired from StormDB. Postgres-XL is a clustered, parallel SQL database designed for both online transactional processing (OLTP) and big data analytics. I spoke with Frank Huerta, TransLattice’s CEO, and Mason Sharp, Chief Architect, to learn a little bit more about Postgres-XL and what it means for the open source community.
