PostgreSQL is an advanced relational database management system, which can be used on many different platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Since it's open-source, it may be easily modified to suit the demands of any developer who employs it. PostgreSQL is also one of the most efficient and stable database systems, with significantly better functionality in handling sophisticated operations compared with similar systems. It's suitable for large-scale applications since a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while an individual table could be up to 32 GB. It is not surprising that a number 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.
