About Postgres by BigSQL
Postgres by BigSQL is complete. At its core, BigSQL is a PostgreSQL distribution. But in addition to the core PostgreSQL database, BigSQL is integrated with more than 20 open source projects that make it easier to do Postgres development, integration, scale-out, and management, as well as migrations from proprietary databases.
All BigSQL components are 100% Open Source, tested to work together, and include many of the leading Postgres-centric projects today.
Postgres by BigSQL is developer-friendly. Unlike some Postgres distributions, BigSQL’s toolchain is 100% open source, with no commercial dependencies. Installers are consistent across OSX and Windows. Binaries are Relocatable. Installs and uninstalls happen cleanly.
BigSQL's goal is to make things easy for PostgreSQL developers, DBAs, and operations teams, and to always "just work". Some additional key points:
- No commercial components
- No dependencies on proprietary software
- No OS-dependencies, like DLL conflicts, registry entries, etc.
