Google Adds Multi-Region Support To Its Cloud Spanner Database
Google recently updated its Cloud Spanner database with multi-region support. This will enable the customers to distribute their databases across the several Google cloud regions. With workload distribution to multiple cloud regions, the customers can benefit due to the fault tolerance that the capabilities provide as well as the reduced latency for processing data from the database to customers.
The multi-region support will also allow enterprises to globally distribute workloads without having to worry about the issues like working to maintain consistent data copies across various regions. Google will tackle the complexity of running the underlying compute capacity required for catering to the needs of a specific workload. The only thing that the customers need to do is write the code.
