PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL

An enterprise class, object-relational database management system (ORDBMS). Fully ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability) compliant, and open source licensed.

PostgreSQL is not owned by any individual or company, but is maintained and developed by an internet community.

The Product

Available under an extremely liberal open source license, PostgreSQL is as good as free for anyone to use. With no maximum database size, a maximum field size of 1GB and maximum table size of 32 TB there are few practical software limits with regard to data storage and manipulation.

Suitable for use with Linux, Unix (all major variants) and Windows, this solution is truly adaptive and delivers support for a wider range of data types than most other offerings.

Scalability

Being open source PostgreSQL is a great start point for the growth of RDBMS architecture in even the smallest organizations. Compliance with ANSI-SQL 92/99 standards in SQL implementation means that data integrity and reporting is maintained to the highest standards.

PostgreSQL is highly customizable, supporting many procedure languages and a wide range of library interfaces. Java (JDBC) ODBC, Perl, Python, Ruby, C, C++, PHP and Lisp are all catered for, as are many others.

This results in the product delivering extensive flexibility in data storage architecture and data access.

Growth

The structure of PostgreSQL was grounded on Ingres, a UC Berkley database project. Many years of development have seen it grow from the stage when it was named Postgres. The incorporation of SQL functionality saw it was renamed PostgreSQL. Through all these phases the product has lost none of its pedigree, hence its ability to comply with the most exacting standards of performance and deliverability.

Given appropriate hardware and sound database architecture, PostgreSQL will deliver high performance across massive amounts of data.
