Using Postgres and Citus for Lightning Fast Analytics, also ft. Rollups | Live Demo | Sai Srirampur

Watch Sai Srirampur, Solutions Engineer at Citus Data (now part of the Microsoft family), give a live demo of how you can use Postgres and the Citus extension to Postgres to manage real-time analytics workloads.

View if you & your application need:

>> A relational database that scales for customer-facing analytics dashboards, with real-time data ingest and a large volume of queries

>> A way to scale out Postgres horizontally, to address the performance hiccups you’re experiencing as you run into the resource limits of single-node Postgres

>> A way to roll-up and pre-aggregate data to build fast data pipelines and enable sub-second response times.

>> A way to consolidate your database platforms, to avoid having separate stores for your transactional and analytics workloads

Using a 4-node Citus database cluster in the cloud, Sai will show you how Citus shards Postgres to give you lightning fast performance, at scale. Also featuring rollups.
