Overall Satisfaction with PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL database is being used across the whole organization by different departments for different services/micro-services. It addresses one important business problem that is cost. We migrated from Oracle to PostgreSQL to save license cost without compromising on RDBMS requirements.
  • Easy to manage.
  • Vast number of extensions are available to meet most of the requirements.
  • Simple database backup and restore.
  • Accessing databases within the same database cluster can be done effectively instead of using dblink.
  • Automatic suggestion on the optimal parameters based on stats.
  • Ease of automating the database creation.
  • Simplicity of active passive setup and failover.
  • simple multi-tenancy setup within the same database cluster.
  • It definitely helped us to save licensing cost.
  • Cheaper support cost.
  • Cheaper maintenance cost as it's not resource intensive.
As I have been telling all along, PostgreSQL is much cheaper compared to the other RDBMS solutions. It has got better performance with some of the application services that we are using and is easy to maintain. Overall, we are satisfied migrating to PostgreSQL database clusters.

Do you think PostgreSQL delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with PostgreSQL's feature set?


Did PostgreSQL live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of PostgreSQL go as expected?


Would you buy PostgreSQL again?


We migrated most of the oracle databases that were used by the application services to PostgreSQL database. In most of the cases it has improved performance. From my experience, performance is good for medium to large databases but not as much different for small databases.
