Welcoming EnterpriseDB to the Portfolio

The cloud has a history of systematically entering entrenched markets and upending them, displacing legacy providers as they fail to compete on ease of use, flexibility, scalability, and pricing. Compute and storage experienced this very cloud disruption over the past decade as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft have released and continued to improve on their public cloud offerings. Companies like IBM, Dell, and HP have struggled to maintain pace with the constantly innovating and iterating public cloud providers.
