Citus delivers scale and performance by distributing Postgres across many nodes—and is often used as a system of record for multi-tenant applications, and as a system of engagement for real-time analytics dashboards. And sometimes, organizations use Citus as their relational database for both multi-tenant and real-time analytics apps, to avoid having to manage multiple different types of databases. What most Citus users have in common: performance—at scale—really matters to them.
SaaS businesses choose Citus to shard their database, so they don’t have to re-architect their app to shard at the application layer. And developers building analytics dashboards with large data sets who need sub-second responses for lots of users, well, they choose Citus for its massive parallelism and millisecond performance. Citus is a fit for all types of real-time dashboards, including geospatial analytics (PostGIS), behavioral analytics, video analytics, web analytics, and operational analytics.
Citus makes things possible for us that would have been nightmarish in a NoSQL world. Moving to Citus has improved the reliability and performance of our database, and the fact that it’s not a black box and all the Citus metadata is open and hackable gives us a lot of flexibility. The Postgres expertise in the Citus team is also a big attraction and has made Citus a one-stop shop for us.Jarred Nicholls
