Build highly scalable applications using the distributed Postgres relational database in Azure Cosmos DB for PostgreSQL. See how it works with current Postgres tools, how to scale out with distributed tables and nodes to keep apps responsive, and how to eliminate latency with geo-replication capabilities for globally distributed apps.

Cosmos DB has a variety of APIs, including native NoSQL and compatible APIs, targeted at NoSQL workloads. With the introduction of Postgres, Cosmos DB offers relational capabilities— a key cornerstone for application developers.

With distributed Postgres in Cosmos DB, you can build highly scalable, cloud native apps using NoSQL and relational capabilities within a single managed service. Principal Group Program Manager, Charles Feddersen, from the Cosmos DB team joins Jeremy Chapman to walk you through the process.
