Hi James,

As it is a brochure site it won't matter if the database of a mirror is out of date for a few seconds.  They do want to be able to update it in one interface though so it can't be separate databases as such.

I have used CDNs and yes they do help.  But I was looking for a way to prioritise site mirrors based on geographical location.

Cheers

Haze

    Hi Haze,

    What’s the use case of the site? How often is it updated? Does it 
    matter if it’s slightly out of date?

    Mirroring the site is fine, but if the database needs to be 
    near-synchronous you’re still going to have latency issues unless you 
    can shard.

    If the database can diverge by a few seconds on each of the nodes, or 
    the data can be separate, you can mirror much more easily.

    Did the CDN help? Alternatively you could try caching (maybe with 
    edge-side includes).

    Thanks,

    James
