EnterpriseDB Finalist in Two Categories at LinuxWorld

EnterpriseDB got the finalist nod for Best Database Solution, for the third year, and for GridSQL For EnterpriseDB. This is the first I have heard of GridSQL and I am looking forward to more info.

All it says in the announcement is:

GridSQL for EnterpriseDB Advanced Server is a new product that will be announced at LinuxWorld on Aug. 7, 2007.

About all I can think is that it is something like pgCluster which is a multi-master, bi-directional replication tool for PostgreSQL. I have a hard believing that's what it because 1) they already have a replication tool and 2) the naming would be incredibly unfortunate.

I say option 2 because when most people hear grid associated with "an Oracle compatible database", they think of Oracle RAC and/or Grid (which most people erroneously think is the same thing but that's a different blog).

So now I wait with baited breath. I wish I had gotten a head's up at least.
