Next Solaris gets open-source database

An update to Solaris 10 due in June will include the open-source PostgreSQL database.

An update to Sun Microsystems' Solaris 10 due in June will include the open-source PostgreSQL database, the server and software company said this week. The inclusion of the software is the result of a project called SunDB that Sun announced in 2005. PostgreSQL competes with open-source databases such as MySQL and the Apache Software Foundation's Derby and with proprietary Oracle, all of which Sun supports in varying degrees.

Sun hired PostgreSQL core team member Josh Berkus in late March, a company representative said Tuesday. Berkus said another core PostgreSQL programmer, Bruce Momjian, works for PostgreSQL start-up EnterpriseDB.
