ABSTRACT:
For years, the common industry perception has been that MySQL is faster and easier to use than PostgreSQL. PostgreSQL is perceived as more powerful, more focused on data integrity, and stricter at complying with SQL specifications, but correspondingly slower and more complicated to use. Like many perceptions formed in the past, these things aren't as true with the current generation of releases as they used to be. DBAs, developers, and IT managers and decision-makers will benefit from this hour-long presentation about the pros and cons of using PostgreSQL or MySQL, which will include a discussion about the ongoing trend towards using open source in the enterprise.
