PostgreSQL Review

Familiar to other solutions, stable, but not use-friendly

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for the back-end database.

What is most valuable?

The PostgreSQL database is similar to the SQL Server but has a slightly different technology that has similar resources as well. If the customer has the confidence using SQL Server, they will be fairly comfortable using this solution.

What needs improvement?

PostgreSQL could improve by being more user-friendly. In SQL Server they have a studio where you can easily do management but not in this solution. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using PostgreSQL within the past 12 months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have found the solution stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable but it could improve.

We have approximately 10 users using this solution in my organization.

How are customer service and technical support?

We are using the open-source version for eight years. We have to rely on our own skillset to manage it.

How was the initial setup?

The installation is easy.

What about the implementation team?

We did the implementation ourselves but it is always recommended to use an expert.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This solution can offer a cheaper choice for customers since it is open-source.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have evaluated SQL Server.

What other advice do I have?

If you have a startup company with a normal production environment then this PostgreSQL should be fine. However, if there is a professional environment where there will be some support requirements and mission-critical applications, then they should choose an alternative, such as SQL Server.

I would recommend this solution to others.

I rate PostgreSQLa seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
