We are considering using PostgreSQL as the backbone for hosting a new
The appeal is obvious but what about security of data? What is the
mechanism for securing the open source? How do developers submit source and
who QA's it ?
What is the performance and scalability like and has it been benched ?
benched against other leading products such as MS, Progress, etc.
Our initial thoughts are for an ASP modeled deployment with up to a thousand
users per instantiated DB.
Is the license owned by a trust whatsoever and is there a possibility of it
being sold or differently licensed?
Would there be limitations or agreements required to accompany our product
once developed and licensed for use by customers ?
Are there any software vendors creating apps with this backbone ? Anyone
other than ISP / Webhosting types.
What disadvantages should I consider ?
