Open Source Versus Commercial Products

The open source version of PostgreSQL only includes the database-management system and the associated programming interfaces. The Red Hat version of PostgreSQL includes a graphical installer and limited support for the installation.

If you have a knowledgeable on-site technical-support staff, the community version may do well for you. However, if you need installation, configuration, and management support, you may be better served by purchasing a commercial version of PostgreSQL.
