Overall, PostgreSQL has been faster than the commercial product from which we converted.
Kevin Grittner, Wisconsin Court System
Skype has been using PostgreSQL as the main DB for most of our business needs right from the start. [With PostgreSQL] we have been quite successful in growing the databases as the company has grown, both in number of users and in the complexity of services we offer.
Hannu Krosing, Skype
Postgres is a truly awesome database. When we started working on Launchpad I wasn't sure if it would be up to the job. I was so wrong. It's been robust, fast, and professional in every regard.
Mark Shuttleworth, Ubuntu Linux
PostgreSQL is well positioned for building and running applications in the cloud. PostgreSQL 9.1 provides some of the most advanced enterprise capabilities of any open source database, and is backed by a vibrant and innovative community with proven customer success.
Charles Fan, Sr. VP R&D, VMware
