EnterpriseDB, the leading worldwide provider of PostgreSQL and Oracle database compatibility products and services, today announced the general availability of Postgres Plus Cloud Database on Amazon Web Services.  Postgres Plus Cloud Database is a full-featured, enterprise-class PostgreSQL database-as-a-service (DBaaS). EnterpriseDB also announced today that CloudBees and Engine Yard have selected Postgres Plus Cloud Database as one of their leading database solutions.

Postgres Plus Cloud Database dramatically simplifies the setup and configuration of PostgreSQL in the cloud.  In addition to support for Amazon EC2, EnterpriseDB has worked with HP to ensure Postgres Plus Cloud Database will run well with HP Cloud Compute.  HP Cloud Compute currently leverages the OpenStack Nova compute platform and API.

“Postgres Plus Cloud Database is the only solution on the market today that makes deploying new instances of PostgreSQL or Postgres Plus Advanced Server easy in any environment,” said Ed Boyajian, President and CEO of EnterpriseDB.  “And, through our partnerships with industry leaders CloudBees, Engine Yard, HP and OpenStack, customers will have numerous ways to take advantage of PostgreSQL ‘elastically’ on multiple cloud platforms.”

Postgres Plus Cloud Database combines the advantages of cloud computing with the features expected in an enterprise-class database, including:
· Fully ACID compliant relational database service
· Point-and-click simple setup & management with web-based interface
· Automatic scaling, load balancing and failover
· Automated online backup and point-in-time recovery
· Database Cloning
· Oracle database compatibility

Postgres Plus Cloud Database is available now with two versions of its cloud database:  PostgreSQL 9.1, and Postgres Plus Advanced Server 9.0. Pricing for Postgres Plus Cloud Database on Amazon Web Services is the same as Amazon RDS (MySQL), whether you choose the PostgreSQL or Postgres Plus Advanced Server database engine.
