PostgreSQL cloud database announced
PostgreSQL specialist EnterpriseDB has announced the availability of Postgres Plus Cloud Database on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Users can run either PostgreSQL or the PostgreSQL-based Postgres Plus Advanced Server with the database-as-a-service (DBaaS) cloud service without needing to undertake major installation or configuration work.
The product will run on HP's Cloud Compute, which uses the OpenStack Nova compute platform and API, as well as Amazon EC2. Administration is via a web interface, with EnterpriseDB also promising high availability, auto-provisioning, automated backups and automatic load balancing. According to EnterpriseDB, the charges for using the service will be the same as for Amazon's MySQL-based Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS).
