PostgreSQL is one of the most popular database systems. It’s supported on almost all platforms, including Mac OS, Windows, Linux, and Unix. All major programming languages can interact with PostgreSQL.
PostgreSQL is well-known for its diverse data types support. Besides typical data type in the regular relational databases, PostgreSQL also supports JSON document type, geospatial data type, and more custom data types.
PostgreSQL is released under PostgreSQL License. It is PostgreSQL's only license and is similar to the BSD or MIT licenses. The PostgreSQL community remains committed to making PostgreSQL available as free and open-source software in perpetuity.
PostgreSQL is highly extensible. PostgreSQL has its built-in programming language. Users can use it to implement their functions. It also supports third-party plugins to extend the functionality of PostgreSQL. Famous PostGIS is one of these plugins.
