Your application has users around the world, so why are you sending their requests across an ocean to a centralized database? What if you could deploy a database that is as globally distributed as your audience so that users’ data stays close to them for low latency while still enjoying strong single-copy consistency?

In his talk, Ben Darnell will walk through recommended tuning optimizations that minimize latencies for a distributed customer base while maintaining security and reliability for mission-critical workloads. Best practices explored will include how to optimally place data to minimize latency, maximize fault tolerance, and meet business requirements.
