PostgreSQL is a sophisticated relational database management system, which you can use on many different platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with many different scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). As it is open-source, it may be easily modified to fit the needs of any developer who works with it. PostgreSQL is also amongst the the most efficient and stable database systems, with significantly better efficiency in handling sophisticated operations in comparison with similar systems. It's well suited for large-scale apps because a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while one table may be up to 32 GB. It isn't surprising that a lot of business, educational and government entities are already working with PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being just a couple of examples.
