PostgreSQL Success Stories

Locately Finds Postgres is the Best Choice for Location Analytics

Locately is a next-generation shopper insights firm specializing in location analytics. Every day, the company must track over a million locationpoints from analysts’ phones in real time and deliver tens of thousands of surveys. Needless to say, they need a reliable, enterprise-class database with powerful geospacial capabilities. Beginning as a small startup with a limited budget, Locately chose PostGIS, a spatial extender for PostgreSQL, after determining it was the spacial-enabled database solution most conducive to their needs.

 

 


 

PostgreSQL Puts the Bite on Datadog’s Demands

Datadog was founded in 2010 to fill a need that co-founders Olivier Pomel and Alexis Lê-Quôc experienced  while working together at a large education software-as-a-service company. Enterprises had been using disparate tools to monitor systems and as a result, development and operations teams were not aligned and were often using conflicting information to make decisions. The pair founded Datadog to integrate infrastructure data from servers, databases, applications, tools and other services to provide a single, unified view displayed in a collaborative environment where teams could work together, using the same information.
