Feb 22, 2006, 00:00 ET from Pervasive Software Inc.

    AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pervasive Software Inc.
 (Nasdaq:   PVSW), a global value leader in data infrastructure software, today
 announced its continued support of the PostgreSQL community by creating what
 is likely to be the most complete online directory that catalogs and organizes
 the numerous PostgreSQL Web sites in one place.  The directory will be
 maintained by Pervasive, but community-driven, and is currently available to
 all at . Pervasive
 Software became the first public company to support PostgreSQL by launching
 services and support for the open source database in January of 2005.
     "The PostgreSQL database community is doing a great job adding tools
 around this powerful, enterprise-ready open source database," said Gilbert van
 Cutsem, general manager, Database Products at Pervasive Software.  "One
 inconvenience facing the community is that there is an overwhelming number of
 pockets of knowledge out there.  That is why we compiled a central directory
 of what we believe are the best and most useful sites.  In fact, we welcome
 PostgreSQL community input for directory additions to further refine this hub
 of PostgreSQL knowledge. The impressive number of Web sites listed in this
 directory is proof that more people are embracing the PostgreSQL open source
 database in the enterprise and in the mainstream database market."
     The PostgreSQL Directory initially includes sections for:
      * Add-ons
      * Community
      * Core Sites
      * Current Events
      * Developers
      * Documentation
      * OSS Sites
     PostgreSQL is the open source database technology leader targeted at
 mainstream businesses needing high-quality relational database management
 systems at the lowest possible cost.  Most deployments are for business
 applications, though Web applications are also common.  Users are selecting
 PostgreSQL for brand new applications as well as database migrations for
 Oracle, Sybase, Informix and Microsoft proprietary databases.
     Pervasive remains focused on the infrastructure layer of the software
 solution stack and on delivering low total cost of ownership, so it is
 uniquely positioned to provide real value to channel partners and their
 customers. In its PostgreSQL services and support offerings, Pervasive has
 applied deep knowledge and more than 20 years of database, migration and
 integration experience and expertise to the rich functionality, services and
 support around PostgreSQL. Pervasive has been an active PostgreSQL community
 member since January 2005.
