PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases
Discover the main differences between Postgre SQL Databases and MySQL databases and see which one is more effective for your web site.
PostgreSQL is an innovative relational database control system, that you can use on many different platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with various scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). As it is open-source, it can be freely modified to fit the demands of any developer who uses it. PostgreSQL is also one of the most efficient and stable database systems, with far better efficiency in handling complicated procedures compared to similar systems. It's well suited for large-scale apps because a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while a single table may be up to 32 Gigabytes. It is not a surprise that a number of business, academic and governmental entities are already employing PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being only a couple of examples.
