Cockroach University: Geo-Partitioning

In this Cockroach University lesson titled “Geo-Partitioning”, you’ll learn how consensus is impacted by write-latency when replicas are physically far apart. Then we’ll look at how to adjust the location of data to reduce this latency. In this lesson, you will learn to: •Identify the primary cause of write-latency in a distributed cluster •Describe, in a basic way, how to use localities to keep relevant data close to the application in a distributed cluster. •Explain how CockroachDB can separate a table into different replication zones •Partition a table •Set zone constraints for each partition of the table •Identify which nodes have which replicas Learn more about CockroachDB by signing up for free training at Cockroach University: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Reference Links •Table Partitioning: (CockroachDB Docs) •Geo-Partitioned Replicas: (CockroachDB Docs) •Low-Latency Reads and Writes in a Multi-Region Cluster: (CockroachDB Docs) •Enterprise License Trial: (Cockroach Labs) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Careers: CockroachCloud: Blog: Docs: Community Slack: Twitter:
