Excerpt of article text...
This month, we have a couple significant news items regarding REAL Server and PosgreSQL.
Wither REAL Server?
REAL Server was REAL Software's foray into the database server market. Based on SQLite, REAL Server was a fast, easy to administer database server. It could not handle a large number of concurrent connections (usually less than 50 or so) and it worked best with databases under a few GB in size. REAL Server was definitely not the most powerful database server out there, but it was a great option for organizations that did need all the complexity offered by other database servers.
