Babelfish:讓 PostgreSQL 可以吃 Microsoft SQL Server 的協定

看到「Goodbye Microsoft SQL Server, Hello Babelfish」這篇,AWSAurora (PostgreSQL) 推出了可以吃 Microsoft SQL Server 協定的 Babelfish

Today, we are making Babelfish for Aurora PostgreSQL available. Babelfish allows Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL-Compatible Edition to understand the SQL Server wire protocol.

查了一下資料發現是去年年底的時候發表的:「Want more PostgreSQL? You just might like Babelfish」,不過當時沒注意到這東西,大概是因為是 preview 的關係:

We are open sourcing Babelfish in 2021. Until then, you can use Babelfish on Amazon Aurora in a preview to see how it works and to get a sense for whether this is the right approach for you.

用起來不知道怎樣,但感覺很值得注意,目前雖然沒用到 Microsoft SQL Server 的東西,但以後遇到可以考慮看看...

除了在 AWS 上用以外,也可以自己到 GitHub 上拉 patch 回來上:「babelfish-for-postgresql」。

話說回來,PostgreSQL 被 AWS 拿來用在好多地方啊,先前大家也猜是 DocumentDB 後面是 PostgreSQL (參考「大家在猜 Amazon DocumentDB 的底層是不是 PostgreSQL...」這篇),不知道之後會不會想要跟 Oracle 的律師打架...
