Distributed PostgreSQL is a game changer | PGConf India 2020 | Parikshit Savjani

Slides from Parikshit Savjani's talk representing Microsoft at PGConf India 2020 in Bengaluru. Postgres is one of the fastest growing DBMS in the industry in terms of popularity. Its extensible architecture combined with truly open source community development makes it very feature rich database engine with unprecedented speed of innovation. But as a developer or DBA, scaling your Postgres workload can be a complex daunting task. Microsoft loves Postgres and with its Azure Database for PostgreSQL Hyperscale (Citus) offering has significantly simplified scaling and manageability of your PostgreSQL workloads.

In this session, we will discuss distributed PostgreSQL architecture of Hyperscale (Citus) and some of the common use-cases and patterns where it shines. You will learn the concept of distributed tables and how you can apply it to achieve massively parallel processing with Hyperscale (Citus). The session will also give you a glimpse of new Azure Arc data services platform which allows you to deploy Hyperscale (Citus) anywhere from multi-cloud, on-premises to edge environments using Kubernetes. Come and attend this session to learn how you can leverage Hyperscale (Citus) to run your Postgres workloads at any scale, anywhere.
