PostgreSQL for NoSQL
NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

PostgreSQL is expanding to become the NoSQL choice of SQL databases. Version 9.2 includes the ability to store JSON data with full querying capabilities on the content of the JSON document. Other extensions let the user store and query data in the form of key/value pairs. This lets you take advantage of the underlying storage and transactional capabilities of a time-tested database without being tied to a relational data model. This is ideal for those who want both SQL and NoSQL applications but prefer a single reliable infrastructure that they already know how to support.
