PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases
What's the purpose of PostgreSQL databases? What are their main advantages? What can they make for your Internet site?
PostgreSQL is an innovative relational database management system, that you can use on numerous platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with various scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Because it is open-source, it can be freely modified to suit the requirements of any developer who uses it. PostgreSQL is also one of the most reliable and secure database systems, with better performance in handling complex operations compared to similar systems. It's suitable for large-scale applications because a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while a single table could be up to 32 GB. It is not a surprise that lots of business, educational and governmental organizations are already employing PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being just a few examples.
