How to create a PostgreSQL database
PostgreSQL is a different DBMS, like MySQL, allowing the management of data. It is released under a BSD license and maintained by a community and not by a company. It is well known for its stability, considered as “near Oracle” and its high respect for SQL standards.
Compared with MySQL, PostgreSQL has the following advantages:
- Better compliance with SQL standards
- Stricter data integrity
- More native data types
- Much more customizable/extensible (define custom data types and functions)
- More advanced support of transactions, stored procedures, triggers and views
- Asynchronous notifications and treatments
- Better scalability
However, it has the following limitations:
- More complex to understand
- Replication is harder to implement
- Generally less well supported than MySQL in current projects (CMS, for example)
