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: * 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.
