An infrastructure of major cloud providers spans dozens of geographical regions and availability zones. With this infrastructure, any application can serve user requests with low latency regardless of whereabouts, bringing the application experience straight to users’ doors. It can also easily comply with data residency requirements when expanding to new territories. Come and learn how to design geo-distributed applications that achieve low latency and comply with GDPR regulations (and similar) by: * Spreading data across multiple availability zones, regions, and even cloud providers. * Serving user requests with microservices closest to the user location. * Using a combination of synch and async communication channels to replicate data and exchange events between cloud regions of different proximity.
- Learn practical patterns and tradeoffs for building geo-distributed applications.
