PostgreSQL - Powerful, Open Source Object-Relational Database System

  •        3755

PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system. It has more than 15 years of active development and a proven architecture that has earned it a strong reputation for reliability, data integrity, and correctness. It is fully ACID compliant, has full support for foreign keys, joins, views, triggers, and stored procedures (in multiple languages). It has native programming interfaces for most of the programming language.

An enterprise class database, PostgreSQL boasts sophisticated features such as Multi-Version Concurrency Control (MVCC), point in time recovery, tablespaces, asynchronous replication, nested transactions (savepoints), online/hot backups, a sophisticated query planner/optimizer, and write ahead logging for fault tolerance.

agensgraph - AgensGraph, a transactional graph database based on PostgreSQL

  •    C

AgensGraph is a new generation multi-model graph database for the modern complex data environment. AgensGraph is a multi-model database, which supports the relational and graph data model at the same time that enables developers to integrate the legacy relational data model and the flexible graph data model in one database. AgensGraph supports ANSI-SQL and openCypher ( SQL queries and Cypher queries can be integrated into a single query in AgensGraph. AgensGraph is based on the powerful PostgreSQL RDBMS, and is very robust, fully-featured and ready for enterprise use. AgensGraph is optimized for handling complex connected graph data and provides plenty of powerful database features essential to the enterprise database environment including ACID transactions, multi-version concurrency control, stored procedure, triggers, constraints, sophisticated monitoring and a flexible data model (JSON). Moreover, AgensGraph leverages the rich eco-systems of PostgreSQL and can be extended with many outstanding external modules, like PostGIS.

Citus - Scalable PostgreSQL for multi-tenant and real-time workloads

  •    C

Citus is a distributed database that scales across commodity servers using transparent sharding and replication. Citus extends the underlying database rather than forking it, giving developers and enterprises the power and familiarity of a relational database. As an extension, Citus supports new PostgreSQL releases, and allows you to benefit from new features while maintaining compatibility with existing PostgreSQL tools.

massive-js - A data mapper for Node.js and PostgreSQL.

  •    Javascript

Massive.js is a data mapper for Node.js that goes all in on PostgreSQL and fully embraces the power and flexibility of the SQL language and relational metaphors. Providing minimal abstractions for the interfaces and tools you already use, its goal is to do just enough to make working with your data as easy and intuitive as possible, then get out of your way. Massive is not an object-relational mapper (ORM)! It doesn't use models, it doesn't track state, and it doesn't limit you to a single entity-based metaphor for accessing and persisting data. Massive connects to your database and introspects its schemas to build an API for the data model you already have: your tables, views, functions, and easily-modified SQL scripts.

ToroDB Stampede - Provides better analytics on top of MongoDB and make it easier to migrate from MongoDB to SQL

  •    Java

ToroDB helps to transform your NoSQL data from a MongoDB replica set into a relational database in PostgreSQL. There are other solutions that are able to store the JSON document in a relational table using PostgreSQL JSON support, but it doesn't solve the real problem of 'how to really use that data'. ToroDB Stampede replicates the document structure in different relational tables and stores the document data in different tuples using those tables.

PostGIS - Spatial and Geographic objects for PostgreSQL

  •    C

PostGIS is a spatial database extender for PostgreSQL object-relational database. It adds support for geographic objects allowing location queries to be run in SQL. PostGIS adds extra types (geometry, geography, raster and others) to the PostgreSQL database. It also adds functions, operators, and index enhancements that apply to these spatial types.

PipelineDB - The Streaming SQL Database

  •    C++

An open-source relational database that runs SQL queries continuously on streams, incrementally storing results in tables. PipelineDB stores only the output of continuous queries, which are incrementally updated as data is ingested. The database’s size is independent of the amount of data ingested over time. It is built into the PostgreSQL core and can be used as a drop in replacement for PostgreSQL without making any application code changes.

pgweb - Web-based PostgreSQL database browser written in Go

  •    Go

Pgweb is a web-based database browser for PostgreSQL, written in Go. Main idea behind using Go for backend development is to utilize ability of the compiler to produce zero-dependency binaries for multiple platforms. Pgweb was created as an attempt to build very simple and portable application to work with local or remote PostgreSQL databases.

Timescaledb - An open-source time-series database optimized for fast ingest and complex queries

  •    PLpgSQL

TimescaleDB is an open-source database designed to make SQL scalable for time-series data. It is engineered up from PostgreSQL, providing automatic partitioning across time and space (partitioning key), as well as full SQL support. TimescaleDB is packaged as a PostgreSQL extension and released under the Apache 2 open-source license.

pgcenter - Command-line admin tool for observing and troubleshooting Postgres.

  •    Go

pgCenter is a command-line admin tool for observing and troubleshooting Postgres.

General purpose of the statistics is to help DBAs to monitor and troubleshoot Postgres. However, these statistics provided in textual form retrieved from SQL functions and views, and Postgres doesn't provide any tools for working with them. pgCenter's main goal is to help Postgres DBA manage statistics that theу have in their databases and see all the necessary data in convenient format based on builtin stats views and functions.
