EnterpriseDB is an enterprise-class database management company headquartered in Bedford, Massachusetts, USA. It provides enterprise class software subscriptions, support, and tools for PostgreSQL which is an enterprise-class open source database with a feature set comparable to the major proprietary RDBMS vendors. The company sells its software products through subscriptions with support and updates included. EnterpriseDB subscription products comprise of Postgres Plus Enterprise Edition and Postgres Plus Standard Edition. Postgres Plus Standard Edition includes open source PostgreSQL, tools for performance, scalability, high availability, and management and support and updates. The tools include EDB Postgres Enterprise Manager for managing/monitoring/tuning large-scale Postgres installations. Postgres Plus Enterprise Edition includes the components of Standard Edition plus database compatibility for Oracle, performance and advanced security features not available in PostgreSQL and other features for manageability not available in PostgreSQL. The company also provides two editions of cloud databases : Postgres Plus Cloud Database Basic and Postgres Plus Cloud Database Advanced. The Management Console in the cloud products provision PostgreSQL and Postgres Plus Advanced Server databases (with database compatibility for Oracle) in single instances, high availability clusters, or development sandboxes for Database-as-a-Service environments. In addition, the company also offers PostgreSQL 24×7 support, training, and professional services such as RemoteDBA, Architectural Health Check, migration services and more.

EnterpriseDB was founded by Denis Lussier and Andy Astor with the motive of "disrupting the database oligopoly with an equally capable product based on open-source principles and development that offered dramatic cost-savings." The company chose PostgreSQL as its technology platform given PostgreSQL's record over 20 years of large-scale commercial deployments, its thriving developer community, and its reputation as the most robust open-source database available.

Some of EnterpriseDB’s clients include Japan’s NTT group, Belgium’s Van Genechten Packaging group, Ireland’s WholeWorldBand, South Korea’s KT Corporation and India based InMobi.


In 2008, EnterpriseDB put out a white paper arguing for the superiority of PostgreSQL over MySQL, even without EnterpriseDB’s own Postgres Plus extensions. EnterpriseDB asserted that MyISAM is the only MySQL storage engine with decent performance despite its flaw of ACID-noncompliance. It argued that row-level triggers, lacking in MySQL but present in PostgreSQL, are the most important kind of trigger. It claimed PostgreSQL is superior in procedural language support and authentication support to MySQL.
