A Matter of Time: Evolving Clock Sync for Distributed Databases
Distributed clock synchronization is critical for many applications, including distributed SQL databases. Clock synchronization needs to keep up with the other demands in our modern infrastructure, such as:
- Applications that have increasing performance requirements while distributing data across different geographic regions
- Network infrastructure and computing power that is improving constantly
A distributed SQL database is highly available and resilient to failures when deployed across a cluster of nodes.
