PostgreSQL Review

As it's free, this enables us to develop applications without having to think about budgets, and gives us greater flexibility. It needs improvement with programming languages like PHP.


Valuable Features

Speed and price, it’s fast and reliable, and free.

Improvements to My Organization

Due to budget restraints procuring software is always an issue, and mainly production systems are well maintained. However development systems are not usually so well off. As PostgreSQL is free, this enables us to develop applications without having to think about budgets, and give us greater flexibility. There is still reluctance by business to accept free ‘Open Source’ software, but proof of concept development can be achieved at no to low cost.

Room for Improvement

Simplicity in design and improvement with programming languages like PHP.

Use of Solution

I've used it for four years.

Deployment Issues

In development it’s super sensitive with comma, quotations, and letter cases. It should not be. If we use uppercase sometimes it works and sometime not, and its need to be single quote sometimes but sometimes double quote.

Stability Issues

There have been no issues with the stability.

Scalability Issues

We've had no issues with scaling it.

Customer Service and Technical Support

I've never used customer services, but it needs a better documentation.

Previous Solutions

We use both MySQL & PostgreSQL, some applications have better compatibility or built in tools, this decides which database we use.

Initial Setup

It's straightforward.

Other Advice

So far we have not had any issues with this database are we are using this in development and production systems.
