Originally called Postgres, PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system created at University of California, Berkeley by professor Michael Stonebraker. its an established yet Versatile project with more than 15 years of active development and a large community of users worldwide.
PostgreSQL is the #1 enterprise-class open source database with a feature set comparable to the major proprietary RDBMS vendors and a customer list that spans every industry. it is completely free with no license fees and no legal complications, it is low on DBA overhead and follows the SQL Standard very closely allowing you to reuse skills easily from other databases.
PostgreSQL offers many advanced features, yet they work in seamless ways so you can use them easily. What’s even more important is that the underlying code is well designed and well documented.
PostgreSQL does one thing well: General Purpose read/write SQL database, That means you can throw all kinds of database designs at PostgreSQL and it copes with them well.
PostgreSQL runs on all major operating systems, including Linux, UNIX (AIX, BSD, HP-UX, SGI IRIX, Mac OS X, Solaris, Tru64), and Windows.
Leading worldwide provider of software and services for PostgreSQL, EnterpriseDB offers two distributions based on PostgreSQL that have additional features and commercial support With powerful performance and security enhancements for PostgreSQL. More than 2,000 enterprises, governments and other organizations worldwide use EnterpriseDB software, support, training and professional services to integrate open source software into their existing data infrastructures.
An open source project thst provides write-scalable, synchronous , symmetric, transparent PostgreSQL cluster solution. It is basicly a collection of coupled database components which can be installed in more than one hardware or virtual machines. It can be configured with as many database servers as you want and handle much more writes which single database server cannot do. you don't have to worry about how your data is stored in more than one database servers internally You can configure Postgres-XC to run on more than one machines. They store your data in a distributed way, that is, partitioned or replicated way at your choice for each table When you issue queries, Postgres-XC determines where the target data is stored and issue corresponding queries to servers with the target data.
