When it comes to installing PostgreSQL on a Linux distribution, using a native package is considered to be a better choice compared to installing from the source. In this webinar, we will discuss some benefits of using native packages to install PostgreSQL.
Optimizing Performance: Installers are shipped with “the lowest common denominator” and native packages use the OS libraries resulting in performance and maintenance benefits.
Security: Native packages depend on the OS, thus updating OS packages are sufficient for security issues.
Usability: Native packages integrate with the OS packaging system (dnf, yum, apt, etc), increasing usability.
