EDB BigAnimal Accelerates Migration of Enterprise Databases to the Cloud


EDB BigAnimal Accelerates Migration of Enterprise Databases to the Cloud


Built and backed by the world’s largest roster of PostgreSQL engineers, EDB BigAnimal enables enterprises to deploy their most demanding databases into the cloud  


Singapore – Oct. 3, 2022EnterpriseDB (“EDB”), the leader in accelerating Postgres® in the enterprise, announced its best-in-class cloud offering, EDB BigAnimal™, is accelerating legacy database migrations to PostgreSQL amongst Singapore enterprises. EDB BigAnimal™ is the first fully-managed PostgreSQL database in the cloud with compatibility for Oracle database technology. This fully managed database-as-a-service (DBaaS) offering enables enterprises that run on Postgres to redirect IT spending, fundamentally transforming their economics, and build better applications with exceeding performance, scalability and security. 


As digital transformation continues to accelerate amongst enterprises in Singapore in response to the challenging market and rising interest rates, they’re continuously adopting open source models in the cloud. The 2022 Singapore Enterprise ICT Investment Trends Report shows an increase in enterprise ICT budget by 6 per cent compared to last year. Moreover, governments are also investing more. The Singapore Government allocated $1 billion dollars of its annual ICT spend in 2022 for projects that will be developed on the cloud, supporting the“Cloud First” strategy established in 2018. Many of these organizations have turned to Postgres as their preferred open source database management system, and EDB is the leading contributor to Postgres. With EDB, the power of Postgres is enhanced to deliver businesses with unmatched flexibility, scalability, and cost savings. 


Enterprises building serious cloud applications in Postgres are beginning to realize that without the transparency, control, and performance tuning required for their most demanding workloads, they’re held back from moving fully into the cloud. EDB BigAnimal responds to these needs by giving organizations granular control over the database within their own accounts and all the enterprise PostgreSQL capabilities EDB has been developing over the past 15 years - while being fully managed by EDB.

Specifically, with EDB BigAnimal, enterprises will experience the following benefits:

  • Partner with PostgreSQL builders. PostgreSQL users have counted on EDB for their on-premises deployments for over a decade. With EDB BigAnimal, users can also rely on unequaled support from EDB’s world-class PostgreSQL experts. 

  • Migrate applications on Oracle databases to PostgreSQL on Azure with little to no changes needed. With EDB BigAnimal, customers can reduce costs, time, and risks when migrating workloads from legacy Oracle databases to cloud environments. 

  • Increase transparency and control of their cloud PostgreSQL. EDB BigAnimal runs in a customer’s cloud account, allowing them to closely manage, secure, and optimize their PostgreSQL along with their other infrastructure according to their business needs and spending commitments. 

  • Minimize complexity with the same PostgreSQL everywhere. EDB Postgres users can expect a uniform database experience, from EDB Postgres on-premises to EDB BigAnimal on Azure. 

  • Enhanced security features to safeguard data. EDB BigAnimal runs in the customer’s cloud account, isolates their data from other users, and gives them complete control over access.


“EDB BigAnimal™ is a product of customer feedback and what they found lacking from existing cloud Postgres offerings,” said Marc Linster, CTO, EDB. “These transformational improvements ensure enterprises get expert attention from the biggest team in Postgres, native compatibility with Oracle database technology, and extremely high availability, all run inside their cloud account.” 

According to Carl Olofson, research vice president, Data Management Software, IDC: “In 2021, we saw a significant rise in cloud infrastructure spend and expect it to soon surpass non-cloud infrastructure. With this growing reliance on cloud platforms, many companies don’t have the in-house skills to deploy, manage, and optimize their databases. Considering EDB’s long track record of building and supporting Postgres, companies have a strong  option for transitioning smoothly and optimizing their cloud database operations.”
