The UK Met Office approved PostgreSQL as its preferred RDBMS, following an evaluation of alternatives. The decision was influenced by 2ndQuadrant training. Data Services Portfolio Technical Lead James Tomkins commented: “With the training we had from 2ndQuadrant we could feel the weight of expertise that came with Gianni [Dr Gianni Ciolli, tutor] and it was obvious he really knew his subject inside out. It was an enormous confidence-building exercise and has been consistent with all of our interactions with 2ndQuadrant.”

2ndQuadrant offers unrivalled access to one of the largest teams of PostgreSQL experts in the world, and continues to make significant contributions to the wider user community through development. Consequently, the company is able to offer 15-minute response times to customers in need of support.
