Oracle competitor gets funded

This is good news for SAP as Oracle gets a significant part of their revenue from SAP application customers. More non-Oracle database options are a good thing.

EnterpriseDB Corp, the open source database company that is pursuing the Oracle market, has announced that its first reference customer is also investing in the company.

The customer, Sony Online Entertainment Inc, one of the largest multi-player gaming sites on the Internet, chose the Postgres-based open source database to lower its operating costs as the site enters a critical period of growth in membership.

Thanks to Jeff for the tip on this.
