If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering PostgreSQL, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten. I'm mostly happy with its capabilities. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this product for beginners.

I would definitely recommend this solution. It is a very good database to have. It is also very good as compared to other tools. I would rate PostgreSQL a nine out of ten.

For anybody who is considering this solution, my advice is that it is better to do enough research on the specific database engine requirements. I highly recommend PostgreSQL with TimescaleDB extension for time-series data.

I would prefer programming languages to query languages. Scripting, for instance. If you have a relational database then you want to use PostgresSQL. I would recommend this solution to others who are interested in using it. It's suitable for everything we use. There was nothing exceptional from my perspective, but it did everything we needed it to do. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We're just customers and end-users. We generally use the last version, as we try to ensure all of our programs are the latest technology. Therefore, we generally use cloud platforms like Amazon or Microsoft, which is Azure. Whichever version is on the cloud, we generally use that version. That said, some of it is on the cloud and some of it is on-premise. In Turkey, we have some legal requirements that require some data to be stored in our country. We have to store it locally. Therefore, we can't use the cloud completely. I'd recommend the solution to other organizations. I would rate the product at an eight out of ten.

If you want one tenant, you can use MySQL. If you want a multi-tenant, I think Postgres is better. SQL on PostgreSQL is linked to Oracle. Oracle and Postgres is the same thing, the same language. You will not have a big change for the software developers to migrate from Oracle to Postgres. I would rate PostgreSQL 8 out of 10.

My advice would be to use PostgreSQL instead of MySQL because of licensing issues. Another reason is that Oracle may remove MySQL soon or add substantial costs to using it It may even turn into something like MariaDB, and then you would need to know if MariaDB and MySQL work the same? PostgreSQL really works well. There are a lot of other databases around right now, but PostgreSQL is the most popular. It is not like a hammer and a nail situation whereby it is the only thing you have to use. If you need a relational database management system, go for PostgreSQL instead of MariaDB or MySQL, then use it side to side. Can also consider other engines out there, like other NoSQL engines, perhaps. I would give it an 8 out of 10. PostgreSQL is not suitable for all types of applications, hence why I gave it an 8 instead of a 10.

I believe we are on version nine of the solution. It's one of the latest versions. I'd advise new users to maybe be aware of the syntax of the sentences of PostgreSQL due to the fact that it's a little different than SQL or Oracle. Overall, I'd rate the solution an eight out of ten. So far, we've been using it and we haven't had any problems.

Go ahead and implement it. It is a nice product, but keep a backup and try to use it for small to medium projects or companies. Some of the customers are demanding PostgreSQL nowadays, so we will keep on implementing it. I would rate PostgreSQL an eight out of ten.
