<database> /'post-gres-kyu-el/ An enhancement of the POSTGRES database
PostgreSQL is an advanced relational database management system with some object
oriented approaches. PostgreSQL is developed and distributed as free software,
and while retaining its freedom it remains technically and featurewise a worthy
competitor to even the most advanced commercial alternatives.
It was also one of the first databases to offer MVCC as opposed to row-level
locking or table locking, thereby greatly improving multi-user performance.
PostgreSQL implements an extended subset of ANSI SQL and runs on many platforms.
It also has interfaces to many different programming languages and database
protocols, like ODBC and JDBC.
