Tutor Diary Database

database When you're choosing a database, you're making a long-term decision, because changing your mind later is difficult and expensive. You want to get it right the first time.

Two popular open source databases, MySQL and PostgreSQL, are often the final two candidates.

MySQL was designed to be a fast web server back end. But Tutor Diary is not just a website. It is a database, which is heavily used everyday. New records are constantly added, altered and deleted; the requirements to a database system become very high, especially for data integrity.

So, considering all of the above we came to the conclusion that the most appropriate database for our system is PostgreSQL. Many organisations favour PostgreSQL because it is so reliable and so good at protecting data, and because, as a community project, it is immune to vendor follies.

PostgreSQL (pronounced Post-gress-cue-ell) originally developed at the University of California, bills itself as the world's most advanced open source database. Some of its fans say it is as good as Oracle, but without the baggage of high cost.

Reliablity is PostgreSQL's top priority. It is known for being rock-solid and well-engineered, capable of supporting high-transaction, mission-critical applications.

If you company prefers using other database such as Oracle then we are happy to discuss your requirements.
