Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"When we announced our ongoing development of the PostgreSQL
Enterprise Replication Server (eRServer) last month I had no idea
how great the interest and demand for this would be." states CEO
Geoff Davidson. "We have received dozens of inquiries from
customers, competitors, and development companies asking for more
information. Today I'm very pleased to announce that the first
prerelease version of eRServer has been delivered for testing."
"At the moment we are limiting our test groups to our existing
Platinum Partners and those clients whose requirements include
these features." advises Jeff MacDonald, VP of Support Services.
"We expect to have the source code tested and ready to contribute
to the open source community before the middle of October. Until
that time we are considering requests from a number of development
companies and venture capital groups to join us in this
"Davidson explains, "These initial Replication functions are
important to almost every commercial user of PostgreSQL. While
we've fully funded all of this development ourselves, we will be
immediately donating these capabilities to the open source
PostgreSQL Global Development Project as part of our ongoing
commitment to the PostgreSQL community."
