EnterpriseDB Closes 2012 With Record 62% Sales Growth

Rising Recognition Among Global Brands of Postgres as Oracle Alternative Drives Demand for EnterpriseDB Products, Training and Support

BEDFORD, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- EnterpriseDB, the leading worldwide provider of enterprise-class PostgreSQL products and Oracle database compatibility solutions, today announced 2012 closed with a record 62 percent increase in sales on a customer base that now numbers more than 2,000 companies. What's more, EnterpriseDB saw an 82 percent increase in recurring subscription-driven revenue, reflecting the long-term commitments that customers are making to Postgres and EnterpriseDB.

EnterpriseDB's success comes as global brands increase their recognition that Postgres reliably meets their database needs, and at a fraction of the cost of traditional databases. Highly scalable and packed with advanced, enterprise-class features and capabilities, Postgres is replacing Oracle or is being deployed in lieu of expanding Oracle at some of the world's largest companies. EnterpriseDB counts 32 of the Fortune 500 list of global companies and 47 of the Global 1000 among the 600 new customers added in 2012. These companies include one of the three largest brands in global hosting, security software and government contractors. Globally recognized brands in banking, insurance and telecom have also made significant investments in Postgres with EnterpriseDB.

"Demand for Postgres has been rising exponentially as more and more enterprises realize its business value and technical depth," said Ed Boyajian, CEO and President of EnterpriseDB. "We have also continued to expand the ecosystem of database features, support, training and tools that database administrators need to manage large deployments. 2012 was a remarkable year for our company and we look forward to continuing our promise of delivering exceptional Postgres products and services for our partners and customers."

Other key developments for the company from the past year include:

  • Expanded the ranks of community Postgres expertise at the company with the hire of Kevin Grittner, a committer. He joined EnterpriseDB's dedicated team of PostgreSQL community contributors. The company increased total employee headcount by 12 percent to meet the surging demand of Postgres.
  • Expanded its partnership with HP by making the Postgres Plus Cloud Database available on HP Cloud Services and giving developers access to a Postgres database that is point-and-click simple to set up and manages scaling automatically.
  • Deepened relationship with KT Corporation on their deployment of Postgres Plus Advanced Server for non-mission critical needs.
  • Recognized as a "Strong Performer" and leader in the category in the Forrester Wave: Enterprise Cloud Database Q4 '12. Achieved top ranking (4th place) for second consecutive year in the industry's popular Future of Open Source Survey.

Key Product Highlights:

  • Released Postgres Plus Cloud Database, a full-featured, enterprise class Postgres database providing cloud computing benefits with push button deployments of read scalable Postgres clusters. Over 6,200 trial registrations have been completed as users tap the Postgres Plus Cloud Database to cut costs, expand services and speed applications to market.
  • Released Postgres Plus Advanced Server 9.2 with expanded Oracle-compatibility, scalability and performance enhancements supporting larger, more complex enterprise deployments.
  • Released Postgres Plus xDB Replication Server v5.0 with Multi-Master Replication (MMR), eliminating a single point of failure, improving write availability and expanding access to data.
  • Enhanced Postgres Enterprise Manager 3.0, allowing database administrators to easily access and monitor their databases from an Internet-enabled device. Postgres Enterprise Manager now has more than 6,500 downloads and 4,000 installations.

@ThingsExpo Stories
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
The world is at a tipping point where the technology, the device and global adoption are converging to such a point that we will see an explosion of a world where smartphone devices not only allow us to talk to each other, but allow for communication between everything – serving as a central hub from which we control our world – MediaTek is at the heart of both driving this and allowing the markets to drive this reality forward themselves. The next wave of consumer gadgets is here – smart, connected, and small. If your ambitions are big, so are ours. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jack Hu, D...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
