PostgreSQL 8.3 Databases

PostgreSQL is an innovative relational database administration system, which can be used on numerous platforms (UNIX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, Windows) and with many different scripting languages (Perl, PHP, Python, Java, Ruby). As it is open-source, it could be freely modified to fit the demands of any developer who works with it. PostgreSQL is also amongst the the most trusted and secure database systems, with a lot better performance in managing sophisticated procedures in comparison with similar systems. It is appropriate for large-scale apps due to the fact that a single PostgreSQL database doesn't have a limit for the size, while an individual table may be up to 32 Gigabytes. It isn't a surprise that many business, academic and governmental entities are already employing PostgreSQL - Skype, the University of California, Berkeley and the US Department of Labor being a few examples.
