EnterpriseDB (EDB), the Postgres database platform company, today announced that it is now an Advantage-level partner in the Dell EMC Technology Connect Partner Program. The Dell EMC Business Partner Program for Technology Connect Advantage Partners provides validated solutions with Dell EMC platforms and leading third-party applications. Joint EDB-Dell EMC customers can purchase Dell EMC solutions validated with the EDB Postgres Advanced Server database.

“We see ever-increasing pressure for scale and performance as we support mission-critical workloads with our open source-based EDB Postgres Advanced Server. Dell EMC’s XtremIO all-flash technology provides our mutual customers with a strong option for optimized storage, allowing us to scale and perform to the standards of our enterprise customers,” said Lenley Hensarling, Senior Vice President, Strategy and Product Management, EnterpriseDB. “Our work with Dell EMC to validate this solution supports our customers’ goal of using open source-based databases as a cost-effective way to support their enterprise digital transformation efforts.”

Dell EMC is a global leader in enabling businesses and service providers to transform their operations and deliver IT as a service. The Technology Connect Partner Program validates Dell EMC with complementary products. EDB and Dell EMC have collaborated, for example, to demonstrate the performance of the EDB Postgres Advanced Server database on the EMC XtremIO all-flash scale-out array. In testing, Dell EMC found that EDB Postgres on XtremIO consistently delivered high performance in the kind of virtualized environments known for their unpredictability. With XtremIO always-on and in-line, data services like deduplication, compression, and virtual copies help to reduce overall storage capacity requirements.

Dell EMC and EDB also tested the EDB Postgres Advanced Server on DSSD D5, the leader in a new category of flash storage – Rack-Scale Flash support. DSSD’s modern architecture is designed for the most data-intensive applications, both traditional and next-generation, that require extreme levels of performance and the lowest possible latency. DSSD D5 reaches new performance heights, with real-world results that speed applications such as genetic sequencing calculations, fraud detection, credit card authorization, and advanced analytics. With parallelized execution of sequential scans, joins and aggregates enabled in EDB’s upcoming release of EDB Postgres Advanced Server, DSSD’s differentiated performance will be a game changer and will open up new use cases for the joint solution.  Already, the results of the Dell EMC and EDB tests show that the unparalleled performance of the DSSD D5, together with flexibility of the EDB Postgres database, provides a unique platform for customers to modernize their traditional database workloads.

Also, currently being tested with EDB Postgres is the DD Boost file system plug-in (BoostFS), a feature of Data Domain Boost software. BoostFS offers increased backup speeds through distributed deduplication, reduced bandwidth requirements, and advanced load balancing and failover. It is simple to deploy and can be up and running in minutes. Administrators of EDB Postgres can now easily meet their most stringent data protection SLA requirements with faster, more efficient backup and recovery.

“We have been working closely with EnterpriseDB testing solutions for relational database workloads where there is a clear need for cost effective and resilient infrastructure,” said Russ Barck, Senior Director for Technology Alliances at Dell EMC. “Through combining Dell EMC’s leadership in Servers, All Flash Storage and Enterprise Backup with EnterpriseDB’s leadership in Operational DBMS support, customers can now experience the scale, performance and data protection of Dell EMC with the simplicity of EnterpriseDB.”
