Today, we are excited to announce public beta access for PolyScale PostgreSQL.
With a simple config change, PostgreSQL users can now distribute and cache data
globally, lowering latency and increasing performance of data driven apps.
PostgreSQL continues to see significant adoption, with many developers choosing
PostgreSQL as their default database for new projects. Likewise, the industry

For connectivity, like MySQL, PolyScale makes it incredibly easy to get up and
running in just a few minutes. Simply pass a PolyScale cache id as part of the
database connection string:
Sign in to PolyScale and set your origin database hostname and port. That will return a cache id.
Append the cache id to your PostgreSQL connection string. For this, PolyScale uses the “application_name” key. For example: postgresql:///mydb?host=localhost&port=5433&application_name=[polyscale_cache_id]. NOTE: PolyScale does not need authentication credentials such as username and password.
