PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system crafted to enable users to maintain complete control over their database management on projects of all shapes and sizes. It has more than 15 years of active development and a proven architecture that has earned it a strong reputation for reliability, data integrity, and correctness. It runs on all major operating systems, including Linux, UNIX (AIX, BSD, HP-UX, SGI IRIX, Mac OS X, Solaris, Tru64), and Windows, and is famous for being one of the best supported databases management systems currently on the market with true cross-platform compatibility and ease of use.
It is fully ACID compliant, has full support for foreign keys, joins, views, triggers, and stored procedures (in multiple languages). It includes most SQL:2008 data types, including INTEGER, NUMERIC, BOOLEAN, CHAR, VARCHAR, DATE, INTERVAL, and TIMESTAMP. It also supports storage of binary large objects, including pictures, sounds, or video. It has native programming interfaces for C/C++, Java, .Net, Perl, Python, Ruby, Tcl, ODBC, among others, and exceptional documentation.
The number of features that PostgreSQL supports can’t be described easily, especially since its aggressive update schedule often introduces many new features with each passing year. As of 2014 PostgreSQL supports databases of unlimited size, with 32 TB of maximum Table size and inlimited indexes per table, and many more impressive stats that make this software platform perfect for projects of all sizes.
