General availability: Cross-region read replicas for Azure Cosmos DB for PostgreSQL
Published date: 30 November, 2022
Azure Cosmos DB for PostgreSQL now supports cross-region asynchronous replication of data from one cluster to another cluster. This feature allows read-heavy workloads to scale out and load balance across independently configured read-only replicas which can also be promoted to independent read-write clusters. These features can provide you with increased read performance and more precise resource utilization for better cost efficiency and higher availability through support for cross-region disaster recovery.
