10X Faster Analytics Queries on Postgres with Citus—a Live Demo
Join Samay Sharma, Lead Solutions Engineer at Citus Data, for a live demo of Citus Cloud, our fully-managed database as a service that scales out Postgres horizontally.

This live demo will compare the performance of analytics queries for a Citus database cluster vs. single-node Postgres. We’ll talk about how Citus shards Postgres—and how query performance scales linearly with the size of the Citus database cluster. And we’ll look at a few Postgres EXPLAIN plans generated by the query planner, to explore how Citus improves query performance by 10X or more.
