  • Parallel sequential scans, joins, and aggregates
  • Elimination of repetitive scanning of old data by auto-vacuum
  • Synchronous replication allowing multiple standby servers for increased reliability
  • Full-text search for phrases
  • Support for remote joins, sorts, and updates in the Foreign Data Wrapper for Postgres (postgres_fdw)
