PostgreSQL features and benefits

PostgreSQL (or just Postgres) is the world’s most powerful open source relational database management system (RDBMS) with over 30 years of active development.

PostgreSQL is highly reliable, performance, scalable and secure.

The following is an incomplete list of features and benefits of PostgreSQL.

Data integrity and consistency

PostgreSQL features transactions with Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation and Durability properties (ACID) which guarantees data validity despite errors, power failures and other mishaps.

Zero License Cost

As a true open source product, the PostgreSQL software is free of charge. You do not have to worry about licensing cost or costly compliance “surprises”.

For many companies, saving on high license costs and avoiding vendor lock-in is a valid reason to migrate to PostgrSQL.

Independent Professional Services

While the PostgreSQL software itself is free of charge, we highly recommend that your PostgreSQL Server be configured and maintained by one or more highly skilled PostgreSQL experts.

At PG Support, we offer independent professional services relating to PostgreSQL. Including hosting, support and consultancy.

Open Source

The source code is freely available under a liberal Open Source license similar to the BSD or MIT license.

The PostgreSQL Global Development Group is committed to keep PostgreSQL available as free and open source software in perpetuity. There are no plans to change the PostgreSQL License or release PostgreSQL under a different license.

Performance & Scalability

PostgreSQL will scale with you as you grow. The technical options for operating PostgreSQL at scale are many.

PG Support helps companies reach the next level of database scalability. Contact us today to discuss PostgreSQL performance and scalability further.
