PostgreSQL Wire Protocol

What is the PostgreSQL Wire Protocol?

PostgreSQL Wire Protocol is a dialect of the SQL language that’s spoken by the database called PostgreSQL. Many people have used PostgreSQL before and are familiar with its language, and many apps and ORMs already use the dialect. The fact that CockroachDB adheres to the PostgreSQL Wire Protocol makes it easy for customers to plug into the database and use it.
