PostgreSQL is a sophisticated relational database administration system, that you can use on numerous platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with many different scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). As it's open-source, it can be freely modified to suit the demands of any developer who employs it. PostgreSQL is also among the most reliable and secure database systems, with significantly better performance in handling sophisticated procedures when compared with similar systems. It's suitable for large-scale applications because a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while a single table may be up to 32 Gigabytes. It's not surprising that a lot of business, educational and government entities are already using PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being a few examples.
