Andertoons 2.0 – This Time It’s PostgreSQL

One of the big changes we made in the new was changing from a MySQL database to a PostgreSQL database.

An enterprise class database, PostgreSQL boasts sophisticated features such as Multi-Version Concurrency Control (MVCC), point in time recovery, tablespaces, asynchronous replication, nested transactions (savepoints), online/hot backups, a sophisticated query planner/optimizer, and write ahead logging for fault tolerance. It supports international character sets, multibyte character encodings, Unicode, and it is locale-aware for sorting, case-sensitivity, and formatting. It is highly scalable both in the sheer quantity of data it can manage and in the number of concurrent users it can accommodate. There are active PostgreSQL systems in production environments that manage in excess of 4 terabytes of data.

Yeah, I don’t understand it either, but if you go by their logos alone…



…I’d bet an elephant could kick a dolphin’s ass any day of the week. So that’s good.

  1. I think I am going to make all my decisions based on logo characters!!!!!

    I'll eat at Big Boy, because Big Boy can kick Ronald McDonald's and Wendy's ass!!!!!!! Not to mention (and I will) BB could just Look Real Hard at Col. Saunders and induce a heart attack!!!! (Anyone ever notice that BB and Dennis the Menace got the same tailor? But I digress.)

    My insurance company will be The Hartford because that stag can stomp and kill that Geico gecko!!

    I'll buy gas from Exxon because they have a tiger logo that's drawn in this cool cartoon style. But if Sinclair Gas was still around, I'd rather buy from a big green dinosaur. Mmm! Jurassic Gas!

    Gone but not forgotten logo here:
