The world's most advanced open source database.

An enterprise class database, PostgreSQL boasts sophisticated features such as Multi-Version Concurrency Control (MVCC), point in time recovery, tablespaces, asynchronous replication, nested transactions (savepoints), online/hot backups, a sophisticated query planner/optimizer, and write ahead logging for fault tolerance.

Over-deployment is what some proprietary database vendors regard as their #1 licence compliance problem. With PostgreSQL, no-one can sue you for breaking licensing agreements, as there is no associated licensing cost for the software. This has several additional advantages: More profitable business models with wide-scale deployment. No possibility of being audited for license compliance at any stage. Flexibility to do concept research and trial deployments without needing to include additional licensing costs. show less

Our software has been designed and created to have much lower maintenance and tuning requirements than the leading proprietary databases, yet still retain all of the features, stability, and performance. In addition to this, our training programs are generally regarded as being far more cost effective, manageable, and practical in the real world than that of the leading proprietary database vendors. show less
