PostgreSQL is a sophisticated relational database management system, which you can use on many different platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). Because it is open-source, it may be effortlessly modified to suit the requirements of any developer who works with it. PostgreSQL is also amongst the the most reliable and secure database systems, with significantly better performance in handling complicated operations compared to similar systems. It's ideal for large-scale applications as a single PostgreSQL database does not have a limit for the size, while an individual table can be up to 32 Gigabytes. It's not surprising that many business, academic and government organizations are already working with PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being only a couple of examples.
