PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases
Learn the main differences between Postgre SQL Databases and MySQL databases and see which more efficient for your website.
PostgreSQL is an advanced relational database management system, which you can use on many platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Because it is open-source, it can be easily modified to match the demands of any developer who works with it. PostgreSQL is also one of the most trusted and secure database systems, with significantly better efficiency in handling complicated operations when compared with similar systems. It is ideal for large-scale apps as a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while an individual table could be up to 32 GB. It is not surprising that many business, academic 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.
