Citus is a PostgreSQL extension that transforms Postgres into a distributed database—so you can achieve high performance at any scale.
With Citus, you extend your PostgreSQL database with new superpowers:
You can use these Citus superpowers to make your Postgres database scale-out ready on a single Citus node. Or you can build a large cluster capable of handling high transaction throughputs, especially in multi-tenant apps, run fast analytical queries, and process large amounts of time series or IoT data for real-time analytics. When your data size and volume grow, you can easily add more worker nodes to the cluster and rebalance the shards.
