Too Far, Too Furious: Multi-Region Spring Cloud Applications
The infrastructure of major cloud providers spans continents, countries, and densely populated metropolitan areas. With this infrastructure, applications can serve user requests with low latency from nearly anywhere in the world. In spite of this fact, only a few deploy application instances across several distant geographies.
This hands-on session introduces you to the design patterns of multi-region Spring Cloud applications with a focus on latency and response time. We will start with a traditional single-region configuration and then switch to a multi-region setting. In the end, we will have a working prototype of a Spring Cloud application that handles user traffic with low latency in North America, Europe, Australia and other continents.
