Great Bridge LLC Launches to Provide Commercial Support for Open-Source Database PostgreSQL

Great Bridge LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Landmark Communications, has been formed with the intention of providing commercial products, services and support for PostgreSQL, an open-source database that rivals leading proprietary databases such as Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server in performance and features. The company will operate initially as a wholly owned subsidiary of Landmark, which under Batten's leadership has made significant investments in other technology companies over the past two years. Great Bridge will provide financial stability, assurance and professional support organization corporate buyers require to proliferate the commercial adoption of Postgres. The company will unveil its initial product and service offerings in August.
