So this month we announced that Dimitri Fontaine is JOINing our team. Dimitri
is a Major Contributor to the PostgreSQL development project and has
authored (and still maintains) key components in the PostgreSQL ecosystem,
including the extension framework that Citus uses. We look forward to
scaling out with Dimitri! :)
Why we’re so happy about this →
With Postgres 10 came native time partitioning, and because Citus is an extension
to Postgres that means anyone using Citus gets to take advantage of time-based
partitioning as well. You can now create tables that are distributed
across nodes by ID and partitioned by time on disk.

7.2 is the latest release of our extension to Postgres. If you care about
Common Table Expressions, complex subqueries, set operations, joins between
distributed and local tables, pg_partman… then this announcement from
our CTO is right up your alley.

Out of the 47 new posts we published last year, posts on sharding were super
popular. But other topics made the cut too, including Rails and multi
tenant applications, complex SQL queries, distributed deadlocks, and
of course our post on how to scale out PostgreSQL on AWS.
Did your favorite make the list? →
In building Citus, we’ve picked up a thing or two about sharding. And our
engineers are often asked to walk people through what sharding is, and
how it works. Here’s how Craig explains it. In plain English.

ASP.NET Core is open source, cross-platform, and runs anywhere you need it
to: Windows, Mac, Linux, Docker. Guest blogger Nate Barbettini shows
us a way to scale your multi-tenant app with ASP.NET.

Some good news: you can now use our database as a service, Citus Cloud, to
manage protected health information (PHI) and to build HIPAA-compliant
applications on top of Postgres.
About Citus Cloud and HIPAA →
Our designers and product people recently redesigned our Use Case pages,
including this page about using Citus for multi tenant applications.
See what you think—and if you’re a fan, please tell your friends so more
developers know about Citus. :)

More and more, developers are using the Citus database to power customer-facing,
real-time analytics dashboards, even when dealing with billions of events
per day. Especially when they have to deliver sub-second responses to
a large number of concurrent users. See why.
