CIO recently interviewed Josh Berkus, Kevin Grittner, Dimitri Fontaine and Robert Haas about PostgreSQL 9.1 and its future.

Every time I want to use a SQL-database I come back to PostgreSQL, it easily is the most standard compliant, most consistent database of them all.

With PostgreSQL 9.1 it has built in replication, combined with pg_pool II or maybe the new replication features in PostgreSQL 9.2 it does everything 98% of the people would want or need.

Ohh, and it's free and open source. :-)

Some people use MySQL, I tried that, I don't want it anymore. They are now starting to add features again (like memcached compatible protocol support), which is good, competition is good.
