PostgreSQL is a free, open-source relational database management system. This object-relational database system uses and extends the SQL language with additional features like complex queries, indexing methods, and functions supporting different programming languages like Python, Java and C/C++, among others. Known for its advanced concurrency control due to MVCC approach (Multiversion Concurrency Control), PostgreSQL is highly extensible through extensions that enable more functionality without modifying the core system. The technology can handle large amounts of data in various use cases from simple web applications to complex analytical systems.
