PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases
Discover the basic differences between Postgre SQL Databases and MySQL databases and find out which one is preferable for your website.
PostgreSQL is an advanced relational database control system, which you can use on many different platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with various scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Since it's open-source, it can be easily modified to suit the needs of any developer who uses it. PostgreSQL is also one of the most reliable and secure database systems, with much better functionality in managing complex operations compared to similar systems. It is well suited for large-scale applications since a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while a single table could be up to 32 Gigabytes. It is not surprising that lots of business, educational and government organizations are already employing PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being only a couple of examples.
