Next Five Reasons Why Postgres Has Reached a Tipping Point-5 Next

Open source IT infrastructure software has been on a rapid pace of adoption over the last decade. Most enterprises have already adopted open source platforms for their operating system and middleware layers. Now, with the attractive cost-performance attributes of Postgres, the database is the logical next step. And, the expertise and confidence that companies have gained in migrating the other areas of their software stacks enables them to more rapidly adopt Postgres.

Postgres is the enterprise-class open source database used by some of the largest companies in the world to handle all types of workloads. Companies like VMware, Microsoft (through its acquisition of Skype), Apple and Facebook (through its acquisition of Instagram) are all PostgreSQL users. So too are the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Fujitsu, NTT, Sony-Ericsson, Sony Online Entertainment, the U.S. State Department and Yahoo. Postgres has reached a boiling point and things are about to really heat up in the database space. Ed Boyajian, CEO at EnterpriseDB, has outlined five reasons why Postgres has reached a tipping point.
