New Open-Source Database Touts Oracle Compatibility

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 3:21 pm

An open-source competitor is zeroing in on Oracle’s customer base–and it’s not the popular and well-known MySQL open-source database. It’s a relative newcomer called EnterpriseDB Advanced Server.

Unlike other open-source offerings, EnterpriseDB Advanced Server is designed to be Oracle-compatible and run Oracle database applications unchanged, says EnterpriseDB CEO Andy Astor. At LinuxWorld recently, the company introduced a migration tool called EnterpriseDB Replication Server to move data out of Oracle and into EnterpriseDB Advanced Server.
