Open source Greenplum is called PostgreSQL.

And what did you want for free? Pay somebody to write these features and donate them to PostgreSQL....

Well I know someone is running that with opensource implementation of it... its been years he is running that in a company and they don't have paid version ... I found one article in chinese that show installation and when I tried Google translate it did not do a good job of  translating it ....

@gheist and if I had that much money I would have not be here asking question and help.... no need to be rude thanks

I'd ask greenplum directly to make world fair.

What is missing in PostgreSQL and EnterpriseDB for your needs?

That feature is not programmable via SQL, so you CAN use PostgreSQL and EnterpriseDB. (the later being more considerate on if you need a DWH or OLTP etc)
Most notably greenplum uses 1 CPU per query max unlike Oracle, DB2 , Informix or khm khm Oracle MySQL)

Community edition of greenplum was discontinued in 2012 week after acquisition by pivotal.

and i'm looking for data warehousing ... i'm more into oracle but since I saw in this company they are using greenplum and the speed that it has is amazing that is why i'm looking into increasing my knowledge and possibly test it in virtual environment they are using it as OLAP not OLTP..

What keeps you away from PostgreSQL? Do you have any measurements it is slow?
According to various comparisons on the internet single-node greenplum (the stuff they hand out for free) matches the speed of postgresql.

With DWH it is all about disks, IOPS and block sizes. The database on top does very little in the end.

PostgreSQL is the only open-source relative of greenplum. Freely handed out licences do not count as open-source.

Okay thanks for the info can you tell me if you have any information about PostgreSQL -XL  should I go for plain PostgreSQL or the XL one?

You can move to postgres-xl once need arises. Lets start it simple.
