What is a Relational Database?

The benefits of relational databases for businesses

Ability to be easily extended
Ability to be easily extended

new data can be added to a database without the need for modification of existing records, as long as they follow the same structure.

Flexibility
Flexibility

as there are no limits on the number of rows or columns in a table, together with multiple data requirement capabilities.

Data security
Data security

as some data may be blocked for access for different users inside the application.

There are plenty of applications for relational databases in business. Think you could use some? Get in touch with us to start building.

Let's get in touch

About MySQL

MySQL benefits

on-demand scalability
on-demand scalability

that allows flexibility and customization, as well as facilitation of management of embedded apps,

high availability
high availability

with 24/7 up-time,

high performance
high performance

as MySQL is prepared to work with even the most demanding applications with perfect speed and exceptional memory caches,

comprehensive support of transactions for fault-resistant operations
comprehensive support of transactions for fault-resistant operations

with ACID (Atomic, Consistent, Isolated, and Durable) transactions built into the system.

About PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL benefits

zero-cost for any number of deployments
zero-cost for any number of deployments

no limited-scale licensing agreements to worry about,

flexibility
flexibility

to do concept research and trial deployments without additional licensing costs,

reliability and stability
reliability and stability

that is almost legendary among users - many companies report that they have not witnessed PostgreSQL crash in years,

multi-platform support
multi-platform support

as PostgreSQL is available for most flavors of Unix (including MacOS) and Windows 8.0 and above

great performance in high volume environments
great performance in high volume environments

as its uses a multiple row data storage strategy (MVCC) that makes PostgreSQL very responsive even in high volume systems,

materialized views
materialized views

which are views where data gets saved, a query is run in the actual table and it refreshes whenever you tell it to do so,
