Multi-Cloud Distributed SQL: Avoiding Region Failure with YugabyteDB
As Amazon CTO Werner Vogels often reminds us: ”Everything fails, all the time”. This means any component of the infrastructure will fail at some point. However, with more and more software being deployed in the cloud, today’s infrastructure must provide redundancy. In addition, the applications that sit on top of it must provide continuity over failures.
This involves database replication when the failure concerns data in motion. But there are different levels of failures and different protection technologies.
