Seems like a bad architectural choice not going with Yugabyte.

I disagree. I would never deploy a service that I haven't used in production before on a major service, especially one that I had less than 2 weeks to plan, develop, and deploy from the scratch as a part of emergency response. There is also a matter resources at our disposal in the public sector.

Postgres is a proven, open-source technology, as is Citus. They also come as a managed service with extensive support from Microsoft. I have the core dev on speed dial. Can't say that about Yugabyte.

As I said in my concluding remarks, it is often easier to come up with solutions from the outside, but when you're inside, things aren't always that easy.
