PostgreSQL Database and Solaris

Sun has been shipping PostgreSQL with Solaris since last summer (Solaris 10 6/06) ["System News" articles 16661]. You can learn more about PostgreSQL in a recent SDNtv interview conducted by Simon Phipps. The database is free and support is available for a fee.

Simon's SDNtv episode also includes an interview with Rich Hillegas, Apache Derby Committer, and Francois Orsini , Java DB Evangelist. Simon sounds quite impressed with the fact that the pure-Java RDBMS takes about 2 megs of memory and can run in a web client.
