Data Director provides self-service database provisioning and automation with vFabric Postgres databases. vFabric Postgres is built on the open source Postgres database.

vFabric Postgres is compatible with pSQL and the PostgreSQL tools and client drivers. vFabric Postgres databases are fully compliant with ACID and ANSI SQL. The ACID properties, Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability, guarantee that database transactions are processed reliably.
