The purpose of this article is to give you an idea about PostgreSQL. Most probably this will be an introduction for you. I will be providing a lot of links through out the article. Make sure to check those out .
Let me start like this. I have been a MySQL fan for a long time & I got a chance to work with PostgreSQL. Then I realised the value of PostgreSQL. Let me tell you little story. This might hurt but let’s face the truth.
Do you know that MySQL is owned by Oracle. As you know MySQL is licensed under FOSS(Free and open-source software) License. Do you really think that Oracle will let their FOSS product(MySQL) beat their commercial product(Oracle Database). I think I made my point here. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that MySQL is bad. It’s an awesome DBMS. That’s for sure. Also PostgreSQL is called the FOSS version of Oracle because it’s that much feature-rich.
