Bungee Connect Platform-as-a-Service Extends Database Programmability with EnterpriseDB's Postgres Plus Product Family

Bungee Connect Gives Organizations Data Hosting Flexibility and Portability

Bungee Labs™ (www.bungeelabs.com) today announced that web application developers can now use Bungee Connect Platform-as-a-Service(PaaS) to develop and host database-driven applications utilizing core PostgreSQL functionality and EnterpriseDB’s Postgres Plus database product family. Developers of Bungee-powered applications can connect to existing and new Postgres databases in a cloud-based development and hosting environment, providing organizations the flexibility to control how and where business data is stored.

“Bungee Connect’s seamless, cloud-based connectivity with the EnterpriseDB family of PostgreSQL database servers provides data hosting flexibility and portability to organizations creating highly interactive data-driven apps,” said Brad Hintze, director product marketing, Bungee Labs. “Developers can leverage Postgres Plus to create high performance, scalable databases for use in Bungee-powered applications without the complexity of assembling and managing all of the software and infrastructure required to develop and deliver web applications.”

Benefits of Postgres Plus to Bungee Connect Developers

Developers of Bungee-powered applications can now program using PostgreSQL functionality and benefit from Postgres Plus features, including Geospatial, GridSQL Parallel Query, Oracle Compatibility and Replication. These capabilities enable highly efficient and scalable database applications based on Postgres Plus. Additionally, EnterpriseDB provides its customers with powerful capabilities for setup, administration, testing, debugging and management of the family of Postgres Plus database servers. These include Postgres Studio for administration, Procedural Language Debugger to test/debug, DBA Management Server and Migration Studio for database migration optimization to the Postgres Plus Advanced Server.

Benefits of Bungee Connect to PostgreSQL Application Developers

The Bungee Connect PaaS provides a comprehensive development and hosting environment for applications accessing multiple web services and databases, now including PostgreSQL and Postgres Plus.

The Bungee Connect PaaS enables the rapid creation of highly interactive web applications while removing significant complexity, time and cost across the end-to-end lifecycle of developing and hosting web applications. Bungee Connect:

  • automates access to web-services (SOAP, REST, and XML)
  • simplifies database connectivity and programmability
  • enables graphical layout for user interface elements
  • provides full programmability of application logic
  • includes AJAX interactivity without programming
  • provides efficient debugging and form simulation capabilities
  • logs web service request and response envelopes
  • enables direct access to PostgreSQL databases, tables, fields, and transactions

Bungee Connect provides direct deployment and hosting for Bungee-powered applications on one or more of three Bungee Grids located in Europe, United States, and at Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). Additionally, beginning in July, developers can download and install the new Bungee Application Server to host their Bungee-powered applications on self-managed infrastructure.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next-gen applications and how to address the challenges of building applications that harness all data types and sources.
