- Difficulty of install
- Lack of built-in simple replication
- Performance for web applications
- Driver quality
- Difficult configuration
So what's next for PostgreSQL development? What do we need to do, technically, to continue as the #1 open source database? I plan to address this in a series of upcoming blog posts.
(note: I'm aware that a large chunk of database adoption is driven by non-techical issues. However, that's not what I'm addressing at this time.)
