It has a whole ton of OLAP and other analysis features PGSQL doesn't have any real analogues for.

Real Full-Text Indexing support. I know there are contrib projects, but like Pgsql replication and clustering, it's still somewhat immature.

Any sort of data-warehousing. Only recently did Pgsql get support for tablespaces.

Scalability. I haven't seen (doesn't mean it hasn't been done) any work to make Pgsql scalable and fast at 128-CPUs, with globs of memory and the like.

This includes both just multi-tasking concerns (e.g., proper locking) and I/O concerns.
