Click through for five product releases the channel will want to know about.
This one is for all you open source fans. Crunchy Data announced that its open sourcing its Crunchy PostgreSQL Container Suite. That means that the PostgreSQL relational database management system (RDBMS) has been modernized to work with cloud native architectures, bringing agility, scalability and self-healing to databases managed in Linux containers.
“The benefits that containers deliver to application developers and DevOps engineers are clear, but data architects have been left wondering ‘How can I run my database in an ephemeral container?’ We’ve answered that question with the release of the Crunchy PostgreSQL Container Suite. This is a result of our belief that cloud native architectures are going to be very influential in the future of the IT stack, and we see a clear need for being able to incorporate the PostgreSQL database into those architectures. This is an exciting time and we are thrilled to be working with companies like Red Hat and great open source communities like PostgreSQL, Docker and Kubernetes
