You may get all the documtention from the site, plus a good search in
google would help also.

You may want to take a look at:    #  this will provide you with the
official documentation.

read it ALL :)
-----------------------------------------------------------------     # a pretty good set of comunity
tech doc, cases.

You will find good tips here.

If you are brave enough, then visit the above url.


For a quick reply:

irc:// , join #postgresql

Good people working there for free.

Tho, about this thread, you shall get a closer look yourself at all
the documentation, prior to asking the wolves >:} about the rocking
features of postgresql. That would make you smarter when asking, and
you will probably avoid a spammy thread.

Are you currently using mysql? If so, are you using InnoDB or the
default ISAM engine?
Are you aware of the Oracle move against MySQL? Do you fully
understand what MVCC provides? Would it be usefull in your case? Have
you checked ? Do you know what Firebird is and
how does MySQL plans to replace InnoDB?

Are you enough sure about what rdbms fits your needs? Do you fully
understand what your current license means and provides? Read, it's
healthy, and it will provide you with knoweledge, which will probably
create good questions to sort, rather than which one is faster. :)

If you are still worried about how fast, quick, speedy, rapid
postgresql is, then take your own choice, measure it, do your own
benchmarks and return them to this comunity, we'll be happy to discuss

Best wishes,
Guido Barosio
