Support for the PostgreSQL database has been announced by Sun Microsystems for their Solaris 10 operating system. The company will begin 24-by-7 support for PostgreSQL, an open-source relational database management system. PostgreSQL is currently in release 8.1, and is fairly mature.

The company also showed its support for Linux compatibility, adding Solaris Containers for Linux Applications, which allows the Solaris 10 OS to run Red Hat Linux binaries without the need for any modifications. Sun have promised to deliver on this by the end of the year.
