PostgreSQL Training FAQ'S

What is Postgre SQL?

An open-source ORDBMS, or object-relational database management system, is Postgre SQL. Postgres or Postgre sql are two names for it. It is one of the most common and often used Object-Relational Database Management Systems in the world of SQL, primarily utilized in huge online projects. It is a potent database management system that offers extra and significant capability by incorporating four fundamental concepts so that users may easily extend the system.

To store the data securely, it expands the capabilities of the SQL language. When the request is executed, it promotes best practices and enables users to obtain the data.

What are the most important features of Postgre SQL?

The most important features of Postgre SQL are as follows:

Area of Compatibility

  • Postgre SQL is compatible with several operating systems such as Microsoft Windows, Linux, MacOS X, UNIX (AIX, BSD, HP-UX, SGI IRIX, Solaris, and Tru64), etc.
  • It is compatible with various programming languages such as C/C++, Java, Python, Perl, Ruby, Tcl, and ODBC (Open Database Connectivity).

Postgre SQL is compatible with multiple data types such as

  • Structured data types, i.e., Array, Date and Time, UUID (Universally Unique Identifier), Array, Range, etc.
  • Primitive data types, i.e., String, Integer, Boolean, Numeric, etc.
  • Customization data types, i.e., Custom Types, Composite, etc.
  • Geometry data types, i.e., Polygon, Circle, Line, Point, etc.
  • Document data types i.e. XML, JSON/JSONB, Key-value, etc.


  • Postgre SQL is highly extensible as it supports procedural languages such as Perl, PL/PGSQL, Python, etc.
  • It is compatible with foreign data wrappers, which connect to further databases with a standard SQL interface.
  • It supports JSON/SQL path expressions, stored procedures, and functions.
  • It supports a customizable storage interface for a table.

Secure and Highly Reliable

Postgre SQL is safe and secure because of the following security aspects:

  • Postgre SQL provides a robust access control system and several authentications such as Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), Generic Security Service Application Program Interface (GSSAPI), SCRAM-SHA-256, Security Support Provider Interface (SSPI), Certificate, etc.
  • It also supports column and row-level security.
  • It is highly reliable as it provides disaster recovery such as active standbys and PITR (Point in time recovery).
  • It supports WAL (Write-ahead Logging)
  • It supports different types of Replication like Synchronous, Asynchronous, and Logical.
  • It supports Internationalization, which includes ICU collations, accent-insensitive and case-sensitive collations, and full-text searches.
  • It is compatible with ANSI-SQL2008.
  • It can improve the functionality of Server-Side programming.
What are the key advantages and disadvantages of PostgreSQL?

Advantages of PostgreSQL

  • PostgreSQL is available as an open-source license, so we can easily get the source code of PostgreSQL, immediately implement it, and change it according to our requirements.
  • It is one of the easiest relational database management systems to learn, so users do not require much training before using it.
  • It can execute dynamic web-application and websites as the LAMP stack option.
  • PostgreSQL is a highly risk-tolerant database, widely used in large web applications.
  • It requires easy and low maintenance management for enterprise and embedded usage.
  • PostgreSQL is robust and powerful. That’s why it is preferred for large-scale web applications.

Disadvantages of PostgreSQL

  • PostgreSQL does not support many open-source applications compared to the MySQL database.
  • In PostgreSQL, creating replication is a bit complex which reduces its popularity.
  • The speed and performance of PostgreSQL are not as good as compared to some other databases and tools.
  • PostgreSQL is not maintained by one company. This may be one of its drawbacks.
  • It is slower as compared to the MySQL database.
  • It is not popular as MySQL, so the installation process is sometimes not easy for beginners.
