    Say Hello to Pivotal Postgres: A New Way to Bring the Power and Versatility of PostgreSQL to Your Enterprise

    I'm a huge fan of jazz music. I love how the best jazz musicians evolve over the years. As a genre, jazz tends to eschew one-hit wonders. Instead, my favorite artists take me through an inspired journey of music that grows and changes with time and influences.
