PostgreSQL is a sophisticated relational database administration system, which can be used on many platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with many different scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Because it's open-source, it can be easily modified to suit the requirements of any developer who employs it. PostgreSQL is also one of the most dependable and secure database systems, with significantly better functionality in handling complicated operations compared to similar systems. It's ideal for large-scale applications as a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while a single table may be up to 32 Gigabytes. It isn't surprising that lots 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 few examples.
