EnterpriseDB, a Westford, Mass-based company provider of products, services, support and training based on the PostgreSQL open source database, has received a strategic investment from KT and has raised venture capital funding from TransLink Capital.

Using PostgreSQL at the core of its products, the company allows enterprise customers to deliver the economies and freedom of open source. Our database compatibility enhancements to PostgreSQL enable seamless migrations from Oracle that save up to 90% of the cost of typical migrations, and our comprehensive training, professional services, and 24×7 “follow the sun” support programs deliver the solutions required by contemporary global enterprises.
EnterpriseDB recently announced the availability of the latest version of its flagship product, Postgres Plus Advanced Server 8.4., which helps IT organizations manage transaction-intensive applications requiring superior performance, massive scalability and compatibility with proprietary database products to reduce overall database costs.
Customers worldwide include Sony, FTD, hi5 Networks, Vonage, McKesson, TD Ameritrade and Backcountry.com, among others.
Founded in 2004, the company also operates offices in North America, Europe and Asia.
