Geo-Distribution in YugabyteDB: Engineering Around the Physics of Latency

Geo-Distribution in YugabyteDB: Engineering Around the Physics of Latency

Moving data closer to where the end-users are enables lower latency access. Geo-distribution can make the data service resilient to zone and region failures in the cloud. Recent adverse weather conditions and data center accidents have underscored the need for this.
