Original product attributes:
  • Exhibit Type:

PostgreSQL is the world’s most advanced open source database. New features in version 8.5 slated to be released in 2010 include: Hot Standby (simple read-only replication built into the database), performance improvements for queries and maintenance routines, machine-readable EXPLAIN output (great for analyzing query performance!), improvements for managing users, permissions and access control, and dozens of useful features for developers – like named function arguments, improved error reporting and many new procedural language-specific features.

PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system with 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. 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.
