Primal Technologies, a leader in Converged Prepaid and Value-Added Services, has just integrated PostgreSQL databases within the Primal Open Service Environment (OSE).
PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source, fully featured, object-relational database system with over 30 years of active development from a talented, independent open source community. It was created from the same research as Oracle and IBM-DB2 and contains a comparable set of enterprise class features. Its optional use in the Primal OSE infrastructure will help to improve reliability, add feature robustness, reduce operating costs and improve overall system performance. “Being free and fully open source makes PostgreSQL the ideal solution for building out and expanding both production and lab systems,” said Parmjit Randhawa, Director of Engineering at Primal Technologies. “In addition, it provides advanced replication techniques like Point-In-Time Recovery, High Availability and Auto-failover allowing this database to transition into the OSE infrastructure easily,” he continued.
“Oracle and MYSQL continue to be offered by Primal, but the added support for PostgreSQL will add additional flexibility to a platform that is already one of the most flexible in the business,” added Mr. Randhawa.
PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system that uses and extends the SQL language combined with many features that safely store and scale the most complicated data workloads. The origins of PostgreSQL date back to 1986 as part of the POSTGRES project at the University of California at Berkeley and has more than 30 years of active development on the core platform.
PostgreSQL has earned a strong reputation for its proven architecture, reliability, data integrity, robust feature set, extensibility, and the dedication of the open source community behind the software to consistently deliver performant and innovative solutions. PostgreSQL runs on all major operating systems, has been ACID-compliant since 2001, and has powerful add-ons such as the popular PostGIS geospatial database extender. It is no surprise that PostgreSQL has become the open source relational database of choice for many people and organisations.
