Sun Adds Postgres Database to OpenSolaris Package

Sun Adds Postgres Database to OpenSolaris Package "Sun Microsystems Inc. will distribute and support the open-source Postgres database with its Solaris Operating System, company officials said on Thursday, adding that Solaris ZFS, the new 128-bit file system with error detection and correction capabilities, will be integrated into OpenSolaris and Sun's branded Solaris 10 in the May 2006 update."

That wouldn't be much more than shovel-ware if it weren't for:

"With regard to the Postgres open-source database, Sun said it is working with the PostgresSQL community to take advantage of technologies in Solaris 10, such as Predictive Self-Healing, Solaris Containers and Solaris Dynamic Tracing (DTrace)."
