Find out what PostgreSQL is.

By James Nunns

PostgreSQL is an open source relational database management system.

Developed by a worldwide community, PostgreSQL itself is not controlled by any one company.

The object-relational database has earned a strong reputation for reliability, data integrity and correctness.

It runs on numerous operating systems such as Linux, UNIX, and Windows. It offers full support for foreign keys, joins, views, triggers, and stored procedures in multiple languages.
