THE ADVANTAGES OF UPGRADING

Why you should upgrade - Advantages: Security, performance, new features

SECURITY

Database security is especially important since database are very vulnerable when it comes to cyberattacks. New PostgreSQL versions usually come with updated security features: both new and modern authentication methods and SSL/TLS version support are regularly added. Clearly only those who use new PostgreSQL versions benefit from new security features.

PERFORMANCE

Each new PostgreSQL version brings performance improvements and makes your querys even faster. So, from a performance point of view, an upgrade pays off in any case.  We have not seen a case in the last few years where a new PostgreSQL version had a negative impact on query performance.

NEW FEATURES

With every release, new features are implemented that are beneficial for both: developers and DBAs. With these features, new improvements can be achieved and simplicity is added to problems that previously required a complex solution.
