Some solutions in the database can represent a high cost to be part of the project and subsequently passed on to the customer, often require resources that principle only a DBMS can offer paid. Analyzing this scenario we realize that even though this need but there is a financially viable option to circumvent this problem, currently Postgres SQL is a free database that can help in situations like this and it is about him that we will discuss below.

Because of this, currently Postgres SQL is widely used in projects of medium and high complexity, another plus in its use is the volume of updates from the developer community. The PostgreSQL Global Development Group, a group that manages updates the bank gets help from programmers worldwide, as the code is open source anyone can create features and submit the analysis team that manages updates versions of Postgres SQL.
Currently he is known as one of the most advanced free databases in the world, created in 1985 by Michael Stonebraker, it is in the version 9.0 released in 2010. The PostgreSQL Global Development Group works hard in the source code of the database to make it more complete.PostgreSQL has gained more space in the market for web development because of the large amount of resources it has, moreover, it is a free DBMS and this makes it extremely attractive for those who need to work with low-cost projects.
