PostgreSQL is an advanced relational database management system, which you can use on many different platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with many different scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Since it's open-source, it could be easily modified to fit the demands of any developer who employs it. PostgreSQL is also among the most dependable and secure database systems, with a lot better functionality in managing complicated operations when compared with similar systems. It is ideal for large-scale apps since a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while one table may be up to 32 GB. It isn't a surprise that a number of business, academic and governmental entities are already employing PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being only a couple of examples.
