■Talks      : Introducing PostgreSQL Enterprise Consortium activities
PostgreSQL Enterprise Consortium (PGEcons) is a non-profit organization aiming for promoting PostgreSQL in production use, especially in mission critical area. It is formed by leading IT companies in Japan last year. Currently PGECons has 36 company members. In the first fiscal year, PGECons performed two major technical activities: PostgreSQL scale up/scale out evaluation (by Working Group 1: WG1) and establishing migration process from commercial DBMSs to PostgreSQL (by Working Group 2: WG2). These objectives were determined based on requests from PostgreSQL users and PGECons members and PGECons believes that sharing the experience is a big benefit for PostgreSQL community.
In this talk we present current achievements of WG1 and WG2.
