A robust SQL Object-Relational Database

PostgreSQL is a powerful database system with a strong reputation for reliability, data integrity, and correctness.

It supports the SQL standard and is fully ACID compliant. It offers many advanced features, including complex queries, foreign keys, triggers, views, transactional integrity and multiversion concurrency control.

It features native programming interfaces for C/C++, Java, .NET, Perl, Python, Ruby, Tcl, and ODBC.
