intelligence that leverages the Internet of Things – these strategic
initiatives bring better visibility into operations and yield competitive
advantages. Yet they remain out of reach for many businesses. That should
The last five years have produced a significant increase in global
organizations deploying Postgres across their organizations and calling for
higher performance as they discovered the value and sought to expand its use.
Meanwhile, in the same five years, the Postgres development community,
There is an important difference between the open source PostgreSQL community

In my previous blog post about horizontal scalability changes in PostrgreSQL
9.6, I covered pushing sorts and joins to the remote server, but Robert Haas
(EnterpriseDB) has just committed a change that allows DML (that's UPDATEs

Today’s connected enterprise requires a single database that can handle
both structured and unstructured data efficiently and that adapts dynamically
to swiftly changing and emerging data types. For many organizations, that
database is Postgres. With JSON, Postgres can support document datab ...
