Cloud Expo New York: Why PostgreSQL is the Database for the Cloud

EnterpriseDB EVP Karen Padir to discuss using PostgreSQL as the back-end database for hybrid/private/public cloud environments

Cloud Expo New York $500 Savings here!

Today, more enterprises are enabling applications to be deployed on public and private cloud infrastructure. However, to date there have been no PostgreSQL Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) options available that have the features, functionality and support that are required for enterprise environments.

In her session at the 10th International Cloud Expo, Karen Padir, executive vice president of products and engineering at EnterpriseDB, will discuss what enterprises require from a DBaaS and why DBAs should consider PostgreSQL to move database operations to public and private clouds. She will also provide tips and tricks to using PostgreSQL as the back-end database for your hybrid/private/public cloud environments.
