PostgreSQL is an advanced relational database administration system, that you can use on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Due to the fact that it is open-source, it can be effortlessly modified to match the demands of any developer who employs it. PostgreSQL is also one of the most reliable and secure database systems, with a lot better functionality in managing sophisticated procedures compared with similar systems. It is suitable for large-scale applications since a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while a single table could be up to 32 Gigabytes. It isn't surprising that a number of business, educational and governmental entities are already using PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being just a couple of examples.
