  • it has allows us to quickly deploy database dependent systems with an isolated data layer
  • The cost has saved us a large sum of money compared to paid options in the space
  • Setup time is very short meaning we can spend more time developing and less time configuring

  • A robust and reliable platform reduces the risk of data loss and confusion.
  • Using an almost free product is economical. No license fees = minimal ownership cost.
  • Efficiency is high due to quickness and excellent resource management.
  • PostgreSQL helps us achieve our goals, and there are no time-consuming management tasks.

  • Free to use, means that we can have as many database instances as we need without cost increase.
  • JSON support is very helpful and saves quite a lot of time querying and searching for data.
  • ACID compliance means with the right implementation and usage we can almost certainly trust the data.

  • Being a platform of great robustness and quality, it generates confidence in the security of the data, which minimizes the risk of confusion or loss of data.
  • Efficiency is extremely high due to the speed and excellent management of resources.
  • PostgreSQL contributes greatly to the fulfillment of the objectives of our area that is focused on legal aspects of the population that requests them and this tool helps to streamline our internal processes.

  • Since it did not create a cost step before the project, it enabled us to act more flexibly on the upper source or software side.
  • We got rid of unpredictable costs such as user CAL licenses after project completion
  • Instance number or core count is not the cost on the postgresql side, but the units of performance do not need to learn a lot for license.

  • Easy to administer so our DevOps team has only ever used minimal time to setup, tune, and maintain.
  • Easy to interface with so our Engineering team has only ever used minimal time to query or modify the database. Getting the data is straightforward, what we do with it is the bigger concern.
  • It's free. You can't beat that.

  • Being open source free software, the ROI couldn't be better.
  • There are a lot of young developers who know the technology and are interested in advancing their careers with the platforms and technologies in which they are invested. It is more easy to contract developers for the platform, then the projects are more quickly finished, then the ROI is made in shorter time.
  • There is a lot of prejudice with PostgreSQL and open source in general, because, they say, there is no company behind it, but thank God, their minds are changing. A lot of companies and consultants will technically support your project and your infrastructure.

  • The user-role system has saved us tons of time and thus money. As I mentioned in the "Use Case" section, Postgres is not only used by engineering but also finance to measure how much to charge customers and customer support to debug customer issues. Sure, it's not easy for non-technical employees to psql in and view raw tables, but it has saved engineering hundreds of man-hours that would have had to be spent on building equivalent tools to serve finance or customer support.
  • It provides incredibly trustworthy storage for wherever customer data dumped in. In our 6 years of Postgres existence, we have not lost a byte of customer data due to Postgres messing up a transaction or during the multiple times the hard-drives failed (thanks to ACID compliance!).
  • This is less significant, but Postgres is also quite easy to manage (unless you are going above and beyond to squeeze out every last bit of performance). There's not much to configure, and the out of the box settings are quite sane. That has saved us engineers lots of time that would have gone into Postgres administration.
