Predictable Performance and Low Cost for Geo-Distributed Applications

Abstract: Applications that run in the cloud must be geo-distributed to achieve high reliability, minimize delays, and follow data localization laws. However, geo-distributed applications face many challenges in achieving these goals due to a key bottleneck: the wide-area network (WAN). Without enough, cheaply-available WAN bandwidth, applications are forced to degrade the service they provide or shut down altogether. Additionally, the latency between data centers limits how quickly an application can serve user requests.
