PostgreSQL developers

Any solution needs a database
to store information.

We recommend
PostgreSQL

To operate with that database, we prefer using PostgreSQL, the most flexible and scalable database management system.

Fast

Removing or adding new columns to the existing database, even if it has millions of entries, takes a couple of seconds at most while other systems often require minutes.

PostgreSQL offers to take advantage of its partial indexes, which is a specialized feature allowing to speed up table update operations by avoiding indexing unneeded information.

In case of large amounts of info the index creation process may take minutes and usually locks the table; in PostgreSQL, you can create index concurrently if needed and keep your data accessible.

Flexible

Distributed storing is often done through non-relational DBs, but PostgreSQL can also be schemaless if used with hstore and the V8 Engine JavaScript procedural language add-on.

Our RubyGarage developers make extensive use of Ruby and JavaScript, and PostgreSQL allows using those languages through add-ons to operate with its databases.

Not only can PostgreSQL offer a lot of non-standard functions to operate with data, but also allows creating custom functions for your own, specific needs in a simple manner

Reliable

PostgreSQL is an open-source project with a vibrant community of developers keeping eye on its reliability, security and further evolution and reacting fast to new threats.

PostgreSQL allows asynchronous (default), and synchronous streaming replication; the last one allows allotting extra performance to guarantee the safety of specific data.

Thanks to using multiversion concurrency control PostgreSQL is extremely responsive and crashless when performing in high volume environments.

… And, since it’s open source, it is also free to use!

PostgreSQL is the best choice in cases
when your web service:

is intended to process large amounts of data

implies complex database design

has high requirements for reliability and data integrity

might be further scaled over time

requires high customization and frequent updates over time.

All the data your solution is going
to store and to process will be safe and secured
in the properly set PostgreSQL database.
