Azure Database for PostgreSQL – Hyperscale (Citus)
Azure Database for PostgreSQL – Hyperscale (Citus) transforms your Postgres database into a database that can scale up and down as well as scale out horizontally. Powered by the Citus extension, the service provides you with all the native capabilities of Postgres, including rich JSON support, powerful indexing, an array of datatypes, full text search, geospatial support, and much more.
