Worker Node Size (Compute & Memory)
Each Hyperscale (Citus) database cluster starts at 2 worker nodes. As your workload grows, you can add more vCores and memory to your worker nodes—and you can scale out your Postgres cluster by adding more worker nodes.
Coordinator Node Size (Compute & Memory)
Each Hyperscale (Citus) database cluster has 1 coordinator node.
Storage per Node - General Purpose SSD Storage
You can configure storage for Hyperscale (Citus) worker nodes and coordinator nodes to be 512 GiB (0.5 TiB) per node, or 1 TiB, or 2 TiB per node. General Purpose storage is charged per GiB of storage you provision.
High availability (HA) avoids database downtime by maintaining standby replicas of every node in a server group. If a node goes down, Hyperscale switches incoming connections from the failed node to its standby. Failover happens within a few minutes, and promoted nodes always have fresh data through PostgreSQL synchronous streaming replication. Enabling HA for your Hyperscale (Citus) cluster effectively creates another set of nodes and thus doubles the cluster price.
Backup storage is the storage associated with automated backups of your Hyperscale (Citus) cluster. There is no additional charge for backup storage for up to 100% of your total provisioned storage on a given node. Additional consumption of backup storage will be charged in GiB/month starting April 2, 2020.

Hyperscale (Citus) is a new deployment option for Azure Database for PostgreSQL that scales out Postgres horizontally. A Hyperscale (Citus) database cluster is a group of nodes that are running Postgres, including 1 coordinator node and 2 or more worker nodes.
Hyperscale (Citus) has a minimum database cluster size of 3 nodes: 1 coordinator node and 2 worker nodes.
An Azure Database for PostgreSQL Hyperscale (Citus) cluster can scale out to 100s of nodes.
Azure Database for PostgreSQL Hyperscale (Citus) is billed on a predictable, hourly rate based on provisioned worker node compute in vCores, provisioned coordinator node compute in vCores, provisioned storage in GiB/month for your cluster, and backup storage for your cluster. On your bill, worker vCores, coordinator vCores, storage in GiB/month, and backup storage in GiB/month will have separate line items.
Backup storage is the storage associated with automated backups of your Azure Database for PostgreSQL Hyperscale (Citus) cluster. Increasing your backup retention period increases the backup storage that is consumed by your Hyperscale (Citus) cluster. There is no additional charge for backup storage for up to 100% of your total provisioned cluster storage. Additional consumption of backup storage will be charged in GiB/month. For example, if you have a cluster storage size of 1.5 TiB, you will get 1.5 TiB of backup at no additional cost. However, if the backup is 2 TiB, you will pay for the incremental 0.5 TiB of backup storage.
Yes. Refer to the Bandwidth pricing details page for more details.
