     23On March 7th, 2012, Spacewalk v1.7 was released, making both database backends feature-comparable.

    3638=== Should I give a try PostgreSQL version? === 
    3739 
    38 Yes! Support for PostgreSQL does quite mature over the last releases. The only thing known not to work well with PostgreSQL backend is monitoring. 
    39 (Updated 2012-01-03) 
     40Yes.

    4344=== Why do you use Oracle?  Any plans for supporting other databases? ===

    45 Originally the Spacewalk code base was used as a hosted application and Oracle was a good choice for a hosted application in 2001. Over the years open source databases such as PostgreSQL and MySQL have improved tremendously in terms of stability, speed, and scalability. You can use [wiki:PostgreSQL] as a database server (with limited feature set). 
     46Besides Oracle database backend, Spacewalk can be used with [wiki:PostgreSQL] database server.
