PostgreSQL Review

I've had no issues deploying it.

Valuable Features

  • Confidentiality
  • Integrity
  • Availability
  • Bug free

I like to work with a piece of software that is bug free and doesn't required to be launched in order that users will find a couple of bugs in the coming weeks and that the company has to fix it.

Improvements to My Organization

It helped me to find an easy and inexpensive solution for databases

Room for Improvement

It would be interesting to have a cloud based database instead of having to install it on any single machine.

Use of Solution

I've used it for approximately one to two years.

Deployment Issues

I've had no issues deploying it.

Stability Issues

The stability was an issue, because when coding under Eclipse with Java, some errors occurred while trying to connect to the database, so troubleshooting may be difficult, since you don't know if it's a Java coding issue or a PostgreSQL translation issue.

Scalability Issues

There have been no issues scaling it.

Customer Service and Technical Support

I never used any customer service or technical support during that time. I used to find alternatives to my issues.

Previous Solutions

Since Oracle was expensive for a company business an inexpensive way was to focus on PostgreSQL.

Initial Setup

The initial setup was straightforward, just activating various modules was more complex.

Implementation Team

We did it in-house.


I saved money instead of using the Oracle solution, which might be more secure than PostgreSQL in various ways.

Other Advice

You need to find a lot of time in order to find all functionality and get used to the PostgreSQL syntax Be patient, look for various forums and do learning by doing.
