PostgresSql vs Sql Server

Feb 19, 2015 at 2:37 AM
I don't have a problem with you guys using it, but it would be more honest to just say that it's the one you know best and that's why you're sticking with it.

That's a weak reason these days, but it is what it is. You really should have utilized database providers to abstract the database away and make it easy for people to support whatever they want.

As far as Postgres vs Sql Server, that isn't even a contest. Take a look at tpc.org! It doesn't matter if it's straight performance or price/performance, Sql Server takes ALL of the top 10 running on many different hardware platforms.

Hi Dewey,

Welcome to MixERP discussions.

I understand that you are not happy with our decision not supporting SQL Server. We made this decision way before starting this project. I have long been using SQL Server since I don't know when.

The first reason, we do not want our users to be forced on SQL Server Licensing. The other reasons include lesser platform dependence, and PostgreSQL flexibility and pl/pgsql language, and much much more.

I would not want to participate in PostgreSQL vs SQL Server debate, but if you have time and enthusiasm to learn about PostgreSQL and especially the difference PostgreSQL and SQL Server, I would like you to kindly have a look on these links:

http://facility9.com/2011/12/ten-reasons-postgresql-is-better-than-sql-server/

I am not, in any way, complying that PostgreSQL is better than SQL Server, and vice versa.

I must confess that I didn't know that PostgreSQL was that good!!!

Some of the out of the box features are simply awesome!

Please accept my apologies, and I will look further into using PostgreSQL!

Thanks...

Dewey,

No offense was ever taken! ;) So, please don't mention it!

I am so happy that you are giving PostgreSQL a thought. Excellent!! And thank you too. :) :)

On the other hand, MixERP has a stable release now. We also have plans to migrate to Web API and ASP.net vNext. I am excited to build and be a part of a community, a vibrant one! I am doing the best I could to bring more people to the community. Please do join us in discussions in forums. Please give MixERP a shot. Let's work together!!!!!
