Postgres – Introduction

PostgreSQL is an advanced, enterprise-class, and open-source relational database system. PostgreSQL supports both SQL (relational) and JSON (non-relational) querying.

PostgreSQL is a highly stable database backed by more than 20 years of development by the open-source community. PostgreSQL development is performed by a team of mostly volunteer developers spread throughout the world and communicating via the Internet.
