PostgreSQL Review

I've had no issues deploying it.

What is most valuable?

  • 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.

How has it helped my organization?

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

What needs improvement?

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

For how long have I used the solution?

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

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

I've had no issues deploying it.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

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.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There have been no issues scaling it.

How are 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.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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

How was the initial setup?

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

What about the implementation team?

We did it in-house.

What was our ROI?

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

What other advice do I have?

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.
