Did you know you can scale out Postgres horizontally, transforming Postgres into a distributed database that can do almost anything - including support demanding HTAP applications? Join Marco Slot - principal engineer and lead for the Citus open source project at Microsoft and Citus open source advocate Claire Giordano - for a conversation about scaling out Postgres to serve HTAP workloads on Azure, with Hyperscale (Citus).
Citus is an open source extension to Postgres that changes the game for HTAP (hybrid transactional analytical processing) workloads. Because Citus is an extension to Postgres, Citus gives you all the transactional and indexing capabilities of Postgres. And because Citus distributes both your data and your queries across multiple servers, Citus gives you low-latency analytics even in the face of high concurrency and billions of rows of data.
In addition to the interview, Marco will also demo Hyperscale (Citus) on Azure Database for PostgreSQL, to shine a light on the extreme performance you can get when you scale out Postgres horizontally on Azure. Come learn why the combination of relational database semantics and parallel distributed operations in Hyperscale (Citus) can give your HTAP application such a high-performing and unique competitive edge.
