The Cockroach Hour: Geo-distributed Data, Residency, Performance and Compliance

Published Wednesday, Sep 30, 2020

Watch the webinar

Whether data is distributed across a single region, the country, or across the globe, WHERE it resides can be incredibly important. The speed of light, data privacy, and compliance with data regulations are all something you need to consider. But, how do you control data residency?  Do you leave it to the application layer?  

At Cockroach Labs we believe the database should control where data lives.  Why? Because with distributed systems this is of the utmost importance.  So, we built our geo-partitioning feature to help you configure this on each table at the row level. And while this helps you get better performance in geo-distributed deployments, it also has the added benefit of helping organizations comply with data privacy regulations.  
In this session, we will cover the following topics
  • The 100ms rule and “real-time” human interactions
  • The complexity of local and global data regulations
  • Data privacy and your customers
  • How geo-partitioning works in CockroachDB
  • Modifying where data lives in production
This will be an intermediate session.
SIDEBAR: The Cockroach Hour
A regular discussion with experts on key topics facing organizations as we all transition to a new digital norm. You bring the questions and we’ll provide experts and a lighthearted and hopefully valuable hour of discussion.
