PostgreSQL Focus

PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source relational database system. Over 15 years of solid development and mission-critical deployments have earned its reputation as the most advanced open source database in the world.

Why PostgreSQL?

Developers use PostgreSQL to drive complex, vital applications. Advanced features enable this technology to capably power both OLTP (online transaction processing) and OLAP (online analytical processing) applications.

  • PostgreSQL is proven, stable, and has a healthy, controlled product roadmap.
  • The technology is high performance, scalable, and secure.
  • An open source system, developers can adapt and enhance it to accommodate future needs.
  • The PostgreSQL development model strongly emphasizes data integrity and accuracy.
