|(database)||POSTGRES - An active DBMS developed at the University of California at Berkeley by a team led by Michael Stonebraker
(1986-1994). Postgres was later taken by Illustra and
developed into a commercial product, which in turn was bought
by Informix and integrated into their product, Universal Server.|
PostgreSQL is a further development of the original POSTGRES code as a free software alternative to commercial DBMS vendor offerings.
