What is Postgres

Postgres is an open source database that provides both powerful and comprehensive relational database capabilities. It is highly scalable, enabling users to store an unlimited amount of data. It has been used to power applications from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies. Postgres is easy to use and can be implemented quickly with minimal configuration and setup. Its features and flexibility make Postgres an ideal choice for most database needs.

Benefits of Setting up Data Documentation in Postgres

  • Comprehensive coverage: covers all SQL commands, configuration parameters, and other features. It provides a detailed reference for users to understand the full capabilities of the database.
  • Consistency: The documentation follows a consistent format and structure, with SQL commands and parameters described in a standardized way. This makes it easier for users to navigate and find the information they need.
  • Single source of truth: PostgreSQL documentation benefits from being comprehensive, accurate, well-structured, and tightly integrated with the codebase, making it a valuable resource for users of the database.
  • Maintain accuracy: By setting up documentation that is easy to update, you ensure that the latest definitions and uses of your data resources are reflected in the documentation.
