Postgresql- Advanced open source database
Postgresql sometimes referred to as Postgres is the most advanced open source database management system. Designed to run on UNIX-like platforms, the primary function of this open source database system is to store data securely, and upon the request of other software applications, it allows for retrieval. On the other hand, PostgreSQL was then also intended to be adaptable so that it could run on several other platforms like Mac OS X, Solaris, and Windows.
With two and more synchronized users, Postgresql can handle ample amount of work ranging from small single-machine applications to large Internet-facing applications.
With an emphasis on extensibility and standards compliance, and because of its stability, the advanced, general purpose and object-relational Postgresql database management system requires minimal maintained efforts. Thus, the total cost of ownership is low, if you develop applications based on PostgreSQL, spaced out from this; there are several other key factors that make Postgres more exceptional and exclusive.
What makes Postgresql standout from other database management systems?
There are a lot of features that makes Postgresql stand out; let us have a look at some of the impressive highlights of this database management system. This general-purpose object- relational database management system is designed to be extensible and with that being the case, you can outline your specific data types, index types, functional languages, etc. In addition, it allows you to add bespoke technologically advanced functions using some of the other different programming languages such as C/C++, Java, etc.
- Multi-version concurrency control (MVCC)
- Sophisticated locking mechanism
- Asynchronous replication
- Referential integrity
- Table inheritance
There are certain notable and impressive set of features that you can observe in Postgresql like triggers, functions, most importantly MVCC, Full, inner, and outer joins, table spaces, wide selection of data types together with infinite length text, IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, arrays, and XML, sub-selects and much more.
