Thanks to its proven reliability in working with huge databases that could be compared with expensive corporate SQL solutions, PostgreSQL is a preferred database software choice for both regular and embedded Web applications running on UNIX, Windows and Mac OS. As a free alternative to powerful corporate applications PostgreSQL is equally good for use by averagely loaded websites and by high-traffic web portals.
The volume and structure of your online demands defines the number of PostgreSQL databases you need for your website(s), as well as the exact PostgreSQL database storage quota to accommodate the databases contents.
What is PostgreSQL Database Storage?
Similar to the regular disk storage quota, the PostgreSQL database storage quota is measured in megabytes or gigabytes and may vary in quantity as defined by the plan configurations offered by hosting providers. Generally, within the hierarchy of plans offered by a host the PostgreSQL database storage amount is increased with the increase of the basic parameters (disk space, monthly traffic) and the number of databases included. This makes it possible for each hosting plan configuration to offer basic service quotas that are proportionate to the growing online needs of the user.
How to choose your PostgreSQL Database Storage quota?
The exact amount of PostgreSQL database storage you need for your online presence is defined by the portion of information that will be stored in databases. The more dynamic content you have on your website, the more PostgreSQL will be needed to store and manage it. Even if you cannot accurately estimate the PostgreSQL database quota for your websites and start running out of PostgreSQL database space at a certain moment, you will usually have the option to get extra storage or upgrade to a bigger plan setup, if possible.
