Red Hat announced new capabilities and features for Red Hat OpenShift, the company's enterprise Kubernetes platform.
Datical, a provider of database release automation solutions, has rebranded and will be conducting operations under the name Liquibase.
The evolution of Datical to Liquibase follows the company’s return to its open source roots, aligning its efforts to build the best solutions to solve tough database challenges.
In conjunction with this announcement, Liquibase is also unveiling a new and updated product portfolio, and expanded resources for Liquibase community members, including a streamlined process and new tooling to make it easier for everyone to contribute code.
“Our name change reflects a fundamental pivot in building value for our customers, partners, and communities,” said Dion Cornett, CEO and President at Liquibase. “We believe in open source collaboration and are realigning our product development efforts around community-driven innovation. This means being both a good steward of our community and a trusted enterprise vendor. Our customers and community are already benefiting from a broader array of supported databases, enhanced ease of use, and faster time to value across a more flexible range of solutions.”
Datical is Now Liquibase
Liquibase is an open source project that was created to solve the problems associated with manually updating database schemas. Datical acquired Liquibase by bringing on the project owner in 2012, and will operate under the name Liquibase moving forward.
With over 15 million downloads, Liquibase is powered by rapid open source innovation and a vibrant user community. The company’s mission is to take the best of its community’s contributions and work on integrating, testing, hardening, and supporting them. Liquibase offers Liquibase Community for free as a way to give back and encourage its open source community to explore database schema change management and drive innovation. Contributions from the Liquibase community have created a trusted foundation for the portfolio of products detailed below.
