EnterpriseDB is expanding its partnership with Google Cloud. An edition of the Postgres database has recently been made available on the Google Kubernetes Engine.

The cloud service Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) has received assistance from EnterpriseDB’s Postgres database (EDB). The database is the basis of software and services offered by EDB. That company already had a partnership with Google and is now expanding it.

Postgres or PostgreSQL is an open-source relational database management system. The focus point for the database is SQL compliance and extensibility. The database’s best-known alternative is MySQL. That database is however in private hands and owned by Oracle, while Postgres relies on the global open-source community.

Specific editions

Of the database, EDB BigAnimal and the EDB Community edition are integrated into the GKE Autopilot service. EDB BigAnimal is a managed database-as-a-service (DBaaS) and compatible with Oracle. The difference between the DBaaS and the Postgres database is the support for parallel processing and workload management. GKE Standard will additionally be available on Google Cloud. Postgres is also ready to be used in the field of AI development.

“We see a growing trend in deploying stateful applications and databases on GKE. This offering from EDB allows customers to quickly and easily deploy Postgres for data-intensive applications,” said Maulin Patel, director of GKE product management at Google.
