Sorry for the cross post.

I am working on a requirements and recommendation document for a division 
of the State of Hawaii Attorney General's office. We are proposing that 
Postgres be used for the application database. Not too surprisingly we are 
being asked for additional information because Postgres is open source.

We all know that Postgres is good and given the requirements and scale of 
this project (fairly small) it is a very good fit. I have looked at the 
case studies listed on and searched the mailing list 
archives. I have also scrounged the Internet looking for examples of 
Postgres being used in government, preferably  in 24x7 capacities. Overall, 
not a lot of examples out there, which seems strange because I know it is 
being used by various government agencies.

Its the communities of users and developers that make open source software 
so powerful, I decided that the best course of action was to leverage the 

So, if you have used Postgres (or know that it has been used) for a 
government project, especially in a 24x7 environment, I would greatly 
appreciate hearing about it. Ideally, I need more than just the project 
name. Specifically, A brief description of the project, number of 
users/transactions as day/week/month, etc, whatever details you have and 
can share.

Please CC me as I'm not subscribed to the list. And since I'm leaving on 
vacation in 3 days, please CC my coworkers at postgres-info(at)eworldes(dot)com

Thanks in advance
