Citus 11.3 is out! Now with tenant statistics. Read all about it in Marco's 11.3 blog post. 💥
SaaS apps grow fast, and need to scale while still providing a snappy user experience. Citus shards Postgres transparently at the data layer. And Citus makes it easy to add nodes & rebalance shards. So you can scale out as your app grows, without giving up Postgres.LEARN MORE
Time series workloads often need to grow beyond the resources of a single node. Capabilities such as the distributed query engine, columnar compression, parallel query, distributed DML… all combine to make Citus a good fit for time partitioned workloads.LEARN MORE
Citus distributes and parallelizes Postgres workloads—and is often used as a system of record for SaaS apps, and as a system of engagement for analytics dashboards and time series data. Sometimes, teams use the Citus database for mixed transactional and analytics workloads, to avoid managing multiple different databases. Others use Citus for high-throughput transactional apps. What most Citus users have in common: performance really matters to them.
SaaS teams choose Citus to shard Postgres, to avoid the costs of sharding at the application layer. Developers building analytics dashboards tell us that distributed Postgres is a game changer, especially for time series data. Citus is a fit for many types of data-intensive apps, including geospatial analytics with PostGIS—plus video, web, and operational analytics dashboards. And the Citus columnar feature enables you to achieve compression ratios of 3x-10x or more.
