It’s the world’s most advanced open source database
PostgreSQL is highly suited to support mission-critical enterprise business requirements across all industry verticals including financial services, healthcare, government, and more.
You can deploy and integrate in the environment of choice: cloud (public or private), on-premise, containers, etc. based on your business requirements. PostgreSQL can also be designed in a variety of architectures that best suits your needs.
Enterprise-ready. Suited for mission critical business applications, PostgreSQL is highly secure out-of-the-box and can be configured for High Availability environments to ensure business continuity. It runs on all major operating systems, including Unix, Linux, macOS, and Windows, and offers a variety of programming languages.
Cost Effective. Free usage through a permissive license, even in commercial software products. Zero capital cost means projects can start as prototypes and develop quickly into production deployments.
Hyperconverged. NoSQL and other non-RDBMS features are natively supported within a relational database. This allows use of a single database even for highly specialized use cases.
Well Documented. PostgreSQL requires detailed documentation for any code submitted; it is then used to create documentation for the various formats available. Superior documentation eases use for developers using PostgreSQL and helps better understand the foundation for customization.
Actively Developed. There is a major release every year and minor release every quarter. No shortcuts are taken when writing PostgreSQL; developers carefully implement reliable algorithms for data protection while consistently producing new, robust features.
Supported by a Global Community. There are local user groups in over 35 countries all working together towards the cutting-edge development of PostgreSQL.

Migrating from Oracle to PostgreSQL is only about as expensive as upgrading from one Oracle major version to the next. There are tools to automate much of the process, making it both reliable and reproducible. However, processes that cannot be automated are handled by experts. Well-versed database professionals in both Oracle and PostgreSQL, like those at 2ndQuadrant, can execute such procedures seamlessly with little to no downtime. Every minute of database downtime could potentially cost millions of dollars in lost revenue, opportunity cost, and compliance penalties.
