PostgreSQL, a five time winner of The Linux Journal Editors' Choice Award for best DBMS, is a powerful, enterprise class, open source relational database system. It runs on all major operating systems, such as Linux, UNIX, Mac OS X, and Windows.
PostgreSQL includes features such as point in time recovery, nested transactions, hot backup, Multi-Version Concurrency Control (MVCC), asynchronous replication, and a query planner. It supports storage of binary large objects like video, sounds and pictures, and also offers programming interfaces for C/C++, .Net, Perl, Ruby, ODBC and Java.
PostgreSQL has documentation worth boasting about. Their comprehensive manuals come in HTML format, PDF and Windows Help file formats, and offer two versions per release, with or without user comments.
