PostgreSQL: a good alternative to Oracle RDBMS

  • January 11, 2023
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
High compatibility with Oracle SQL and Oracle PL/SQL. With very few changes, you are able to migrate an Oracle Database to PostgreSQL. There are also a good choice for what concern high availability and load balancing solutions.
What do you dislike about the product?
PostgreSQL is able to manage JSON data with native datatype and APIs. But if you need to query datasets over 10 Gbytes of raw data, consider transforming JSON documents to normalized tables because queries may have time-out issues.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Currently, PostgreSQL is solving the problem of not having the high cost of an Oracle Database installed on-premises. And it also solved the problem of having to rewrite all the PL/SQL code written in another language.

Exploring PostgreSQL

  • January 05, 2023
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best about the product?
PostgreSQL, or "Postgres", is an open-source relational database management system (RDBMS).PostgreSQL, or "Postgres", is an open source relational database management system (RDBMS). It supports multiple programming languages, making it easy to develop applications using your preferred language. Unlike some other popular database solutions, such as MySQL and Microsoft SQL Server, PostgreSQL is 100% free and open source.
What do you dislike about the product?
One major disadvantage of PostgreSQL is that it doesn't enjoy as much support from software companies as other database systems like Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle. This can mean that you may find it difficult to find commercial software that supports PostgreSQL and that integrates well with your existing system. Another issue with PostgreSQL is that it can be difficult to upgrade to newer versions. If your company relies on upgrading its database system regularly in order to stay competitive, then you may not want to choose PostgreSQL.Finally, some businesses may find that they need more features than what's offered byPostgreSQL when compared to other enterprise-level database systems. These features may include complex security controls, data replication and mirroring, and advanced performance tuning options.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
PostgreSQL offers advanced security features such as role-based access control and mandatory access control. This makes it an ideal choice for high-security environments.PostgreSQL supports robust data replication which enables you to replicate your data across multiple databases or clusters. This helps improve performance and availability. PostgreSQL offers powerful querying capabilities that allow you to query your data in any way you want. You can also use rich SQL functions to manipulate your data.

What do you dislike about the product?
Too many reserved keywords. With these many keywords we dont get to chosse meaningful column names due to reserved keyword restrictions.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Helps store the data and is one of the best "structured query language" tools out there. Pretty versatile in supporting multiple formats of queries.

PostgreSQL is a very robust and tested relational database known for its simple implementation and great features like fault tolerance, self recovery and detailed logging capabilities.

It is a very old relational database which is not very efficient, it has not aged well and the current technology relevance is very limited. It is slow, not compatible with modern applications and lacks proper support and documentation.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
PostgreSQL is part of ArcSight, one of the SIEM solutions we currently use. It is light-weight, easy to use and serves the purpose as there is no much operational overhead.

PostgreSQL Review Analysis

  • November 24, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
PostgreSQL is a fast, secure and reliable database to store relational data. It also supports ACID properties, so we stored sensitive data there. It is a open source platform so that we don't have to buy any subscription to use this database.
What do you dislike about the product?
PostgreSQL is not suitable for using JSON-like data structures. Also, it's not always available to every server; you must install it explicitly. PostgreSQL has a relatively slow query speed as compared to MySQL database.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
With the help of PostgreSQL, we are able to integrate our Springboot application to store user artwork along with their respective artwork pdf in our database and query them whenever we want to retrieve this.
