We are migrating one of our warehouse applications from Oracle to Greenplum which is PostgreSQL under the covers.  There is a major amount of effort required to transition to Greenplum but the database is an order of magnitude faster at a much lower cost than Oracle. We did look at EnterpriseDB but Greenplum was just much faster out of the box.  We have other PostgreSQL projects where we will use the Open Source version.   We did talk to a couple of consultants who spoke highly of EnterpriseDB but cautioned us to start small.
