EDB Launches Postgres AI Platform to Take on Data Workloads

The announcement comes alongside news of EDB's expanded strategic alliances with Nutanix, SADA, and Red Hat.

EDB, a major player in the PostgreSQL database space, is making a bold move to position itself at the forefront of the AI revolution. The company has unveiled EDB Postgres AI, an intelligent platform capable of handling transactional, analytical, and AI workloads seamlessly.

In an industry first, EDB Postgres AI can be deployed as a cloud service, software, or even a physical appliance, all powered by the same underlying PostgreSQL engine. This flexibility aims to meet customers wherever they are on their digital transformation journey.

The launch of the new platform is accompanied by a rebranding effort, signaling EDB’s belief that PostgreSQL can solve the most complex data challenges faced by organizations in the AI generation. According to Kevin Dallas, EDB’s CEO, the company aims to help customers break down data silos and launch new AI initiatives across any cloud, on-premises, or hybrid environment, with the confidence of enterprise-grade security, compliance, and availability.

“Nearly 75% of U.S. companies have adopted AI, but businesses still need a foundational technology that will allow them to quickly and easily access their abundance of data and fully embrace AI – and that’s where EDB Postgres AI comes in,” Dallas stated.

Key capabilities of the EDB Postgres AI platform include rapid analytics, allowing organizations to roll out on-demand analytics for transactional data while maintaining business continuity. It also offers intelligent observability, enabling unified management of on-premises and cloud databases through a single interface.

Notably, the platform provides enterprise-grade support, security, high availability, and compliance for pgvector, a PostgreSQL extension for vector data. This feature supports the storage and processing of vectorized data, a crucial component for powering generative AI applications and large language models.

EDB Postgres AI also boasts continuous high availability, promising up to 99.999% uptime and round-the-clock access to PostgreSQL experts. Additionally, it offers a comprehensive Oracle Compatibility Mode, facilitating the modernization of legacy systems by enabling customers to replatform existing applications to a modern solution for transactional, analytical, and AI workloads.

The announcement comes alongside news of EDB’s expanded strategic alliances with Nutanix, SADA, and Red Hat. It also follows the company’s acquisition of Splitgraph, which laid the foundation for EDB’s analytics capabilities.

With this move, EDB is positioning itself as a major contender in the rapidly evolving AI landscape, aiming to provide a robust and flexible platform for organizations to leverage their data assets across a wide range of workloads.
