San Jose, CA – April 29, 2008 – Continuent, Inc., the leading provider of commercial open source middleware solutions for database high availability, today announced it has joined the EnterpriseDB Blade Partner Program. “Blade” is the term given to a technology solution that is complementary to or integrated with EnterpriseDB’s Postgres Plus or Postgres Plus Advanced Server products.

Blade partners will benefit from high visibility, new routes to market, and a wide range of co-marketing and business development opportunities with EnterpriseDB.  Customers of the EnterpriseDB Blade solutions are assured of the products’ interoperability and also benefit from well-defined, solution-based customer support.

Continuent uni/cluster offers a multi-master approach to replication. Data is committed and available to all nodes in the cluster simultaneously, effectively eliminating data latency and providing increased reliability through redundancy. Continuent uni/cluster includes a build-in load balancer, which allows any database server to be used to process user queries, providing near-linear scalability, and optimal resource utilization, throughput and response time.

"EnterpriseDB Blade Partners offer compelling solutions that are complementary to or integrated with EnterpriseDB’s Postgres Plus and Postgres Plus Advanced Server products," said Bob Zurek, chief technology officer, EnterpriseDB.  "We are excited about the high quality and enthusiasm of the first companies to become part of the Blade Partner Program, and we think Blade customers will be delighted by the assured product interoperability and solution-based customer support."

"The solutions in this partner program solve daily key challenges facing customers, including database scale-out and data replication," said Eero Teerikorpi, CEO at Continuent.  "Our customers benefit from interoperability testing and integration certification by partners, which provide customers with predictable installation and ongoing operations, and gain optimal business value from their enterprise applications and databases."
