PostgreSQL is an advanced relational database management system, that you can use on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Since it is open-source, it could be effortlessly modified to suit the needs of any developer who works with it. PostgreSQL is also one of the most trusted and secure database systems, with significantly better functionality in handling complicated operations when compared with similar systems. It's well suited for large-scale apps due to the fact that a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while a single table can be up to 32 Gigabytes. It is not a surprise that many business, academic and government organizations are already employing PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being a few examples.
