Bizgres MPP 2.2 by Greenplum Is Available

Greenplum has announced general availability of its Bizgres MPP 2.2 database. This release delivers significant compatibility, performance and usability improvements and has benefited from input by Greenplum's growing list of production customers and partners.

- Enhanced "Explain Analyze" support improves SQL tuning and application development
- Temporary objects support allows the use of temporary tables, views and sequences
- Improved subquery support enables more complex statements and sophisticated analytics
- PostgreSQL 8.1.4 compatibility and patches leverage the community's latest contributions to PostgreSQL.
