EnterpriseDB Open Sources GridSQL

To encourage community adoption, the GridSQL license includes a provision that allows GridSQL to be embedded in software that is licensed under any other OSI-approved open source license without subjecting that software to the GPL reciprocity requirements. The general availability release of GridSQL may be downloaded as part of Postgres Plus and Postgres Plus Advanced Server at http://www.enterprisedb.com/products/download.do and as an open source project at http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/gridsql/. EnterpriseDB´s Mason Sharp, the original architect of GridSQL, will continue to lead the development of GridSQL and will coordinate the SourceForge community´s participation.
EnterpriseDB separately announced today that IBM has joined existing investors as part of a $10 million Series C venture capital round and that the new Postgres Plus family of enterprise-class RDMBS products is immediately available for download at www.enterprisedb.com/products/download.do.
"EnterpriseDB continues to drive open source innovation in the data management field," said Bob Zurek, chief technology officer, EnterpriseDB. "GridSQL is the most robust open source information management grid technology on the market today. Our decision to open source GridSQL will allow this powerful and exciting technology to thrive. With GridSQL, EnterpriseDB extends its recognized technology leadership among open source databases from OLTP to the business intelligence and data warehousing realms."
