Why Use PostgreSQL With Odoo?
PostgreSQL, also known as postures, is a general-purpose object-relational database server that is available under an open-source user license. Furthermore, it has been developed over 15 years by a vibrant and independent open source community and is widely regarded as one of the most reliable databases, with a strong emphasis on dependability and correctness.
Even before Oracle, Postures was the first database management system to implement Multi-Version Concurrency Control (MVCC). It is the most advanced database system and is highly recommended, especially for organizations that prefer to use freeware and open source software such as Odoo.
Michael Stonebarker is the creator.
Postures is a more advanced version of the 'Ingres' database system, which was developed between 1997 and 1985.
The postures database system took Stonebarker and his colleagues eight years to fully develop.
Andrew Yu and Jolly Chen improved the database further by replacing the POSTQUEL query language with SQL and naming it postgres95; these were the first to enter the software industry and became widely used open-source database servers.
WHY USE POSTGRES / POSTGRESQL IN ODOO?
If we need a small website or application with a database back-end, MySQL is usually the best choice. However, for an enterprise DBMS, Postures is superior. PostgreSQL, on the other hand, has several advantages over other database systems.
1 Open source
It is open source and can be customized to meet our specific needs at any time. This level of customization is extremely useful in large-scale applications.
Learning and programming for these databases are very cost-effective, and there isn't much user training required. In addition, maintenance and tuning requirements are minimal when compared to others.
3 Large developer community
PostgreSQL has been on the market for over 15 years, and its developer community has grown significantly during that time. The large developer community means excellent support and assistance in resolving database-related issues.
It is portable with almost all platforms and programming languages. So, the database is ideal for applications targeting multiple platforms
5 Developers tool and GUI
Many tools and graphical user interfaces (GUIs) have been developed to aid in the installation and management of database servers. It does not necessitate a large amount of command-line configuration.
Postures is built to be extendable. That is, you can create your own data types, index types, functional languages, and so on.
7 Reliability and Stability
Unlike other database systems, the chances of a database crashing are low, and even if a database does crash, there are methods and features for restoring and recovering data. It is the most stable and trustworthy database.
DOES ODOO SUPPORT MYSQL?
Odoo does not work with MySQL out of the box. Odoo currently does not support the MySQL database. However, we can accomplish this by making some changes to the code/architecture. There are a few third-party connectors and OCA modules available for connecting to a MySQL database. The free module 'External database source – MySQL', which is available on the Odoo app store, allows you to define connections to foreign databases via ODBC, Firebird, Oracle Cient, or SQLAlchemy.
