Multi-Region Database Deployment: ALTER DATABASE SURVIVE REGION FAILURE

In this livestream conversation, Adam Storm, an engineering director from Cockroach Labs, explains how the new simple multi-region database deployment works using primarily one command: ALTER DATABASE SURVIVE REGION FAILURE.

There is a hands-on keyboard demo of how to set up a multi-region database and there is also a long conversation about why multi-region database deployments are so important now and why they've been difficult in the past.
