PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL is an open-source database. Databases are necessary for applications to store and access records on the backend. But building your own robust database is difficult. Many developers opt for pre-built database frameworks, such as PostgreSQL, for their data organization needs. PostgreSQL is an object-relational database that uses and extends the SQL language. With over 30 years of active maintenance, PostgreSQL has matured its solution and features substantially. Developers utilize PostgreSQL for indexing, data lookup, performance optimizations for large databases, security features, and other enhancements. PostgreSQL runs on all major operating systems.
