Database company EnterpriseDB introduces a new cloud play for PostgreSQL.
Programmers say the new version of the open-source database is 5 to 30 percent faster and works better on Windows.

EnterpriseDB has had a somewhat iffy relationship with open source. Today, that changed.
Big Blue isn't sitting still while Oracle buys Sun: instead, it's ensuring it builds Oracle compatibility into DB2 via a partnership with EnterpriseDB.
EnterpriseDB has changed the way it sells and operates, making it a viable competitor to Oracle, as well as MySQL.
Success turns out to be a mixture of hard work, intelligence, and just the right happenstance.
