From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      /'post-gres-kyu-el/ An enhancement of the
     POSTGRES database system.
     PostgreSQL is an advanced relational database management
     system with some object oriented approaches.  PostgreSQL is
     developed and distributed as free software, and while
     retaining its freedom it remains technically and featurewise a
     worthy competitor to even the most advanced commercial
     It was also one of the first databases to offer MVCC as
     opposed to row-level locking or table locking, thereby
     greatly improving multi-user performance.
     PostgreSQL implements an extended subset of ANSI SQL and
     runs on many platforms.  It also has interfaces to many
     different programming languages and database protocols,
     like ODBC and JDBC.
