Leaving Oracle for PostgreSQL?
You’re not alone. Here are the top 5 reasons our customers have made the move:
PostgreSQL offers significant cost savings
PostgreSQL has no licensing costs. With Oracle’s complex pricing structure, renewal costs typically go up, not down, especially with Unlimited Licensing Agreements (ULAs).
Enterprises can avoid vendor lock-in
PostgreSQL lets enterprises integrate best-of-breed solutions into their database infrastructure. They aren’t restricted by a technology stack that’s only compatible with Oracle.
Easier to replatform to cloud/hybrid
PostgreSQL runs everywhere, including on every major cloud provider.
The innovation action is in open source
Developers are the driving force behind PostgreSQL. The world-wide PostgreSQL community has been steadily integrating enterprise-grade functionality into and around the project since 1986.
Smoother path to Digital Transformation
As enterprises modernize their tech and marketing stacks to meet changing customer and market demands, they’d rather avoid Oracle's long contract commitments, audits, and poor support experiences.
