EDB Announces General Availability of BigAnimal, PostgreSQL Database in the Cloud
EDB , a leading contributor to PostgreSQL®, today announced the general availability of its BigAnimal™ offering, the first fully-managed PostgreSQL database in the cloud with compatibility for Oracle database technology. Built and backed by the world’s largest roster of PostgreSQL engineers, BigAnimal is for enterprises looking to deploy their most demanding databases into the cloud.
“BigAnimal was built in direct response to what our customers told us was missing from existing cloud Postgres offerings,” said EDB president and CEO, Ed Boyajian. “These improvements aren’t incremental - they’re transformational. We’ve made no compromises. This means you get fanatical attention from the biggest team in Postgres, native compatibility with Oracle database technology, and extreme high availability. And we run it all inside your cloud account.”
Accelerate Business with the Best Cloud PostgreSQL
Customers who are building serious cloud applications are realizing that they can’t get what they need from the basic PostgreSQL offerings available today. Without the transparency, control, and performance tuning required for their most demanding workloads, they are held back from moving fully into the cloud. BigAnimal responds to these needs by giving organizations granular control over the database within their own accounts and all the enterprise PostgreSQL capabilities EDB has been developing over the past 15 years - while being fully managed by EDB.
Specifically, with BigAnimal, enterprises will experience the following benefits:
- Partner with PostgreSQL builders . For over a decade, PostgreSQL users have counted on EDB for their on-premises deployments. Now with BigAnimal, users can also rely on unequaled support from EDB’s world-class PostgreSQL experts.
- Migrate applications on Oracle databases to PostgreSQL on Azure with little to no changes needed. With BigAnimal, customers can reduce costs, time, and risks when migrating workloads from legacy Oracle databases to cloud environments. BigAnimal’s deep compatibility with Oracle database technology and comprehensive migration tools address a critical need for enterprises who want to move quickly without leaving behind all their legacy database investments in code, skill sets, and resources.
- Increase transparency and control of their cloud PostgreSQL . BigAnimal runs in a customer’s cloud account, allowing them to closely manage, secure, and optimize their PostgreSQL along with their other infrastructure according to their business needs and spend commitments. BigAnimal also gives users an unprecedented level of control over their PostgreSQL with superuser access to precisely tweak database internals.
- Minimize complexity with the same PostgreSQL everywhere. EDB Postgres users can expect a uniform database experience, from EDB Postgres on premises to BigAnimal on Azure. This includes the ability to use their existing PostgreSQL skill sets, incorporate the database into their DevOps pipelines, and leverage EDB Postgres Advanced enterprise capabilities, such as enhanced security, performance management, and compatibility with Oracle database technology. With support for license portability, EDB also allows customers to easily deploy PostgreSQL whenever, wherever their business requires.
According to Carl Olofson, research vice president, Data Management Software, IDC: “In 2021, we saw a significant rise in cloud infrastructure spend and expect it to soon surpass non-cloud infrastructure. With this growing reliance on cloud platforms, many companies don’t have the in-house skills to deploy, manage, and optimize their databases. Considering EDB’s long track record of building and supporting Postgres, companies have a strong option for transitioning smoothly and optimizing their cloud database operations.”
