Pervasive Software Inc., a global value leader in data infrastructure software,  announced it plans to contribute source code for DTrace probes to the PostgreSQL community. DTrace probes provide a superior interface for monitoring the PostgreSQL engine and allow for more effective tuning. Pervasive also formally welcomed Sun Microsystems to the PostgreSQL community and applauded new support of PostgreSQL through the Solaris 10 Operating System. In January 2005, Pervasive introduced the first integrated set of open source support and services for the PostgreSQL database from an established database company.

"For the past year we have noted the acceleration of the predictable move in the data infrastructure software industry toward open source. The announcement by Sun is proof that PostgreSQL is now ready to take on the large commercial databases and provide a powerful and affordable alternative to restrictive and expensive traditional software infrastructure," said David Sikora, president and CEO, Pervasive Software. "As an independent, platform-neutral infrastructure provider, Pervasive is uniquely positioned to provide services and support for any organization considering PostgreSQL."
