Products, Websites and Services that use PostgreSQL
MySQL, the open source database which has been acquired by Oracle seems to be losing favor to PostgreSQL.
PostgreSQL is an open source object-relational database system that runs on all major operating systems, including Linux, UNIX (AIX, BSD, HP-UX, SGI IRIX, Mac OS X, Solaris, Tru64), and Windows.
Its limits are pretty impressive -
|Maximum Database Size||Unlimited|
|Maximum Table Size||32 TB|
|Maximum Row Size||1.6 TB|
|Maximum Field Size||1 GB|
|Maximum Rows per Table||Unlimited|
|Maximum Columns per Table||250 - 1600 depending on column types|
|Maximum Indexes per Table||Unlimited|
PostgreSQL is used as the primary database by the following:
- OpenStreetMap, a collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world
- Sony Online multiplayer online games
- US State Department
- MusicBrainz, open online music encyclopedia.
- Sun xVM, Sun's virtualization and datacenter automation suite - Sun bought MySQL and sold it to Oracle.
