PostgreSQL is a feature-rich object-relational database management system, which is known for being one of the most secure and dependable systems available on the market. It's cross-platform (Linux, UNIX, Windows, FreeBSD) and cross-language (PHP, Ruby, Java, Perl, Python), that makes it universal and lots of organizations and companies are already using it for their products or their own websites - just a few examples are Apple, the US Department of Labor, IMDB.com and Skype. The system is open-source and exceptionally customizable, not mentioning that it's more advanced than other management systems in relation to handling sophisticated operations. Also, the fact that a single table may be up to 32 Gigabytes in size, while the database size is unlimited, makes PostgreSQL an outstanding option for scalable apps.
