Postgres began in 1996 and has since become a leader among open source databases. It is known for its durability as well as its strict SQL standard compliance. Originally developed by Michael Stonebraker at Berkeley under funding from DARPA, the Army Research Office, the National Science Foundation and ESL, Inc, the 1987 POSTGRES implementation was eventually refined and released several times, becoming Postgres95 and then, in 1996, being released as PostgreSQL version 6.0
