Today we’re excited to announce the private beta of Citus MX. Citus MX builds on the Citus extension for PostgreSQL, which allows you to scale out PostgreSQL tables across many servers. Citus MX gives you the ability to write to or query distributed tables from any node, which allows you to horizontally scale out your write-throughput using PostgreSQL. It also removes the need to interact with a primary node in a Citus cluster.
We’ve performed over 500k durable writes per second (using YCSB) on a 32 node Citus Cloud cluster with our regular PostgreSQL settings. We’ve also exceeded ingest rates of 7 million records per second using batch COPY. Watch the video to see it in action. If you’re curious to learn more, read on or to get access, sign up below.
