PostgreSQL, or Postgres, is an object-relational database management system. Object-relational means that it uses data objects and not just tables of data. It has a large cplection of features that help with data integrity, data security, and more. Something that differentiates Postgres from other competing databases is its high level programming language that allows you to create SQL statements programmatically.
WooCommerce is a popular e-commerce platform for WordPress developed by WooThemes. It’s built on top of WordPress to add functionality to create a full-featured online store for selling products or services. The integration between WooCommerce and PostgreSQL is very useful in that the data is stored within PostgreSQL, which gives you the benefits of the robust features of PostgreSQL while having all of your data related to the WooCommerce platform stored in one central location.
One of the main reasons you would want to integrate your WooCommerce platform with a database is to keep all of your data in one location. This also includes keeping information from customers in one location rather than many. When using the default MySQL database for WooCommerce, the information is stored in two separate locations:
WooCommerce Dashboard -> Data stored in MySQL database -> Website -> Data stored in MySQL database
By storing all of your data in one location, it makes it easier to access, manage, and backup. With the integration of PostgreSQL and WooCommerce, everything is stored in PostgreSQL, giving you the benefit of a robust database with many features as well as the WooCommerce features. One other reason you may want to integrate these two platforms is if you have a site that has already been created with the default MySQL database and you don’t want to migrate any information into another database, but still want to take advantage of the powerful features of PostgreSQL. In these instances, you can install both WordPress and PostgreSQL and then install the WooCommerce plugin to start using it with PostgreSQL.
There are many benefits to integrating WooCommerce and PostgreSQL. Some of these include:
High Availability – You will have a system that has built-in high availability for your e-commerce platform. This will allow you to easily deploy new servers and scale up as needed without interruptions to your business. Scalability – You will have a scalable system that can handle a large amount of traffic on your store. It also allows you to easily add more web servers when needed without causing interruptions or slowing down your site. Flexibility – You will have a system that allows you to easily update or add new extensions where needed without affecting your existing data or causing interruption. Security – You will have a system that has built-in security features so that you can be assured your website is secure and protected. Cost Effective – You will have a system that has less cost than most other enterprise databases. This includes less time spent managing the database, less time spent upgrading it, and less money spent on hosting it in general.
While there are many factors invpved when deciding which e-commerce platform to use, integrating your e-commerce platform with an enterprise database like PostgreSQL may be something worth considering. Using PostgreSQL with an e-commerce platform like WooCommerce can help achieve many benefits including high availability, scalability, flexibility, security, cost effective, and more.
