PostSQL - using PostgreSQL as a better NoSQL

by Hannu Krosing for EuroPython 2012

A short overview how PostgreSQL can be used for tasks that are currently often delegated to heterogeneous bunch of data storage solutions referred to by common name NoSQL. Covered topics from traditional NoSQL area are:

  • developer friendlyness, even for sloppy developers
  • scalability
  • easy extensibility and maintainability

And from SQL part

  • partial ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability) ,
  • general BASE (basically available, soft state, eventually consistent)
  • business rule checking in database, hard to overlook even in case of multiple applications using the same data
