Chapter 4 Power BI on Open Source Stack

PostgreSQL is an open source object-relational database management system (ORDBMS). It is based on POSTGRES, which was introduced at Berkeley Computer Science Department at the University of California. The idea behind using the name PostgreSQL was to highlight the relationship between POSTGRES and SQL. This means that a large set of SQL standards are supported by PostgreSQL.

–Foreign keys
