Solaris had long been the operating system for performing managed services in the telecommunication arena. During a time when Oracle priced Solaris out of the market by charging a higher fee for similarly performing hardware than other competitors, Sun Microsystems started bundling Postgres and later purchased MySQL for bundling. Postgres is a simple, easy to enable, royalty free database available for Solaris. This article will discuss using the Solaris 10 bundled Postgres database.
