Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei said his company’s much-hyped proprietary operating system would be able to compete with top rival systems within two years, according to a transcript of his Sept. 19 interview with Fortune magazine.

Open source database systems have been optimized to cloud architecture to a far greater degree than proprietary systems. In the case of EDB Postgres, you can get it as a managed database service on Amazon Web Services or as self-manageable, clusterable private instances in the public or private cloud of your choice.
