Postgres also offers something not found in other relational databases, namely the ability to store a range of data of a given type. It could be particularly useful for calendaring applications, where one wants to store or query across a range of dates. Scientific and financial applications might also benefit from this approach.

EnterpriseDB's current version of Postgres, Postgres Plus Advanced Server, is still based on Postgres 9.1, though it includes many features the company helped develop for Postgres 9.2, including the support for 64 cores. A version of Postgres Plus Advanced Server based on Postgres 9.2 will be released by the end of the year, Kincaid said.
