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 http://www.pervasivepostgres.com/postgresql/pgd/index.asp . 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:
* Core Sites
* Current Events
* 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.
