PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases
Learn about PostgreSQL databases, their positive aspects and what they can do for your website.
PostgreSQL is an advanced relational database control system, that you can use on a variety of platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with various scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). As 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 significantly better functionality in managing complex operations in comparison with similar systems. It's well suited for large-scale applications since a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while an individual table could be up to 32 GB. It isn't a surprise that a lot of business, educational and governmental entities are already using PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being a few examples.
