Next Five Reasons Why Postgres Has Reached a Tipping Point-3 Next

In the last few years, Postgres capabilities have continually improved and have added a number of impressive new features, such as built-in replication (both synchronous and asynchronous), scalability over 64 cores, JSON support, added security and more. Because of the strength of its independent open source community, thousands of contributors work together to rapidly add innovative new features to Postgres. This, combined with many years of increasing maturity, has resulted in new levels of feature and performance parity with proprietary databases.

Postgres is the enterprise-class open source database used by some of the largest companies in the world to handle all types of workloads. Companies like VMware, Microsoft (through its acquisition of Skype), Apple and Facebook (through its acquisition of Instagram) are all PostgreSQL users. So too are the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Fujitsu, NTT, Sony-Ericsson, Sony Online Entertainment, the U.S. State Department and Yahoo. Postgres has reached a boiling point and things are about to really heat up in the database space. Ed Boyajian, CEO at EnterpriseDB, has outlined five reasons why Postgres has reached a tipping point.
