General availability: Read replicas for Azure Database for PostgreSQL Flexible Server
Published date: April 12, 2023
The read replica feature enables you to improve the performance and scale of read-intensive workloads.
- Read workloads can be isolated to the replicas, while write workloads can be directed to the primary.
- Read replicas can be deployed in a different region and can be used as a read-write server in the event of a disaster recovery.
- Replicas are updated asynchronously with the Postgres engine native physical replication technology.
- You can replicate from the primary server to up to five replicas.
