PostgreSQL is a high level relational database administration system, which you can use on many different platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with various scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Because it's open-source, it could be easily modified to match the needs of any developer who employs it. PostgreSQL is also one of the most trusted and stable database systems, with a lot better performance in handling sophisticated procedures in comparison with similar systems. It is ideal for large-scale applications as a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while an individual table could be up to 32 GB. It's not surprising that many business, academic and governmental organizations are already employing PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being just a few examples.
