Ingres Corporation, the leading open source database company and pioneer of the New Economics of IT, announced today the creation of EasyIngres, an Ingres developer community product that helps PHP developers easily create applications using Ingres and simplifies the transition from MySQL to Ingres. REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – July 14, 2009 – Ingres Corporation, the leading open source database company and pioneer of the New Economics of IT, announced today the creation of EasyIngres, an Ingres developer community product that helps PHP developers easily create applications using Ingres and simplifies the transition from MySQL to Ingres. Spearheaded by Cédric Pasquotti a PHP developer based in France, EasyIngres bundles all necessary components to easily create PHP applications which can take advantage of the enterprise feature set provided by Ingres. EasyIngres is now available for download at http://esd.ingres.com/product/Community_Projects/Development_Tools/Windows_32-Bit/EasyIngres/.
“The EasyIngres developer team recognized early on that it’s not just the enterprise that demands the best database technology – Web 2.0 and social networking companies are managing more mission-critical business and customer data than ever before,” said Emma McGrattan, senior vice president of engineering, Ingres. “EasyIngres makes it easy for PHP developers to transition to Ingres from MySQL and take advantage of the superlative performance, scalability, and security features of our code right away.”
“From the moment I worked on Ingres, I knew that as a community we could make it much easier for PHP developers to work in their environment,” said Cédric Pasquotti. “So, for the first time ever, we put together all of the various components needed to write PHP applications for Ingres, and packaged it as a single installable image. In turn, we’ve made it significantly easier for PHP developers to make the switch over to Ingres.”
EasyIngres, a package which automatically installs a PHP development environment, is a community project that brings together the Ingres database, Apache and PHP projects to streamline the setup and configuration process. Included in the bundle are Ingres 9.2, Apache 2.2.8, PHP 5.2.9, Ingres Developer Workbench, Scite Editor Version 1.77 and the Frequent Flyer application, all in a single installable package. EasyIngres was designed with productivity in mind, and offers enterprise capabilities for business critical projects, from the desktop to the data center.
EasyIngres is just one example of how the Ingres community has been at the forefront of innovation for Ingres and its products. Significant updates have been made to the Ingres Community page in recent weeks and developers are encouraged to check out the new site at http://community.ingres.com/.
“The updates Ingres has made to its community webpage have been substantial,” said Kim Ginnerup, a Technical Director at Bording Data who has been using Ingres for 22 years. “I have seen the company and the software change dramatically over the years. Right now, they’re on the right track to build, support, and help their community grow. Ingres support has always been in a league of its own. By leveraging Web 2.0, social networking, and blogging, Ingres is now taking the next natural step by offering the community the opportunity to work together to make this great product we use every day even better.”
