PostgreSQL packaged for Mac OS X in pgMac Database Kit
VICTORIA, BC - HeavyLifters Inc. and PostgreSQL, Inc. announced today that the pgMac Database Kit has been Certified for use with PostgreSQL.
The pgMac Database Kit is an industrial-strength database product that
consists of the award-winning open source PostgreSQL database, an installer for Mac OS X, and administration tools for managing PostgreSQL databases.
pgMac is packaged to be easily used by a Mac OS X user with little or no database experience.
Geoff Davidson, CEO of PostgreSQL, Inc. says, “This is an exciting new toolkit that will help speed up development Mac OS X applications using the power of PostgreSQL. HeavyLifters was our first Platinum Partner, and we have been working with them for several months to certify and support the pgMac Database Kit for the Mac OS X environment. Although PostgreSQL was already available on the Mac OS X platform, until now it was not easily used by the mainstream Mac OS X user. Before pgMac, Mac OS X users had to have considerable Unix experience and skills simply to install and use PostgreSQL.”
Doug Pelton, CEO of HeavyLifters Inc. advises, “This release is designed to be used by software developers who need a scaleable, industrial-strength database at the core of their Mac OS X products. There are an estimated 2.5 million Java developers, many of them working on applications for the new Mac OS X operating system. This product can save each developer at least two months of development time, and provides them with a professionally packaged and commercially supported open source database to supply to their end users.”
A trial version of the pgMac Database Kit is now downloadable from the www.pgmac.com website, and Apple’s Mac OS X downloads site www.apple.com/downloads/macosx.
pgMac is available for sale at an introductory price of US$249 per single computer from www.pgmac.com. Volume discounts are available for educators and developers.
