PostgreSQL is a feature-rich object-relational database control system, which is renowned for being one of the most secure and dependable systems out there. It's cross-platform (Linux, UNIX, Windows, FreeBSD) and cross-language (PHP, Ruby, Java, Perl, Python), which makes it universal and numerous organizations and firms are already using it for their products or their own Internet sites - just a couple of examples are Apple, the US Department of Labor, and Skype. The system is open-source and very customizable, not mentioning that it's better than other management systems when it comes to managing complicated operations. In addition, the fact that a particular table could be up to 32 Gigabytes in size, while the database size is unlimited, makes PostgreSQL an excellent option for scalable apps.
