Our Postgres team at Microsoft is excited to announce PostgreSQL 14’s General Availability (GA) on Azure’s [Hyperscale (Citus)]( option. To our knowledge, this is the first time a major cloud provider has made a new Postgres major version generally available on their platform within one day of the official PG release.

You can now deploy Postgres 14 in many of our Hyperscale (Citus) [regions]( In upcoming months, we will roll out Postgres 14 across more Azure regions and also release it with our new [Flexible Server]( option in the Azure Database for PostgreSQL managed service.

This announcement brings the latest in Postgres to those of you who run your workloads on Azure.
