Developed at the University of California, Berkeley, beginning in 1972, the INGRES relational database management system was originally a research prototype that helped to prove the viability of relational systems. This article describes the subsequent development and commercialization of INGRES and covers the strategic decisions made by the company's founders and the lessons learned from their experiences.
