Public preview: App Configuration geo replication support
Published date: 17 August, 2022
Azure App Configuration now supports replicating your configuration data in the configuration store to replicas in other Azure regions. Available to standard tier subscribers, any updates or additions to key/values in the configuration store or in a replica will be automatically synchronized, using an eventual consistency model. This delivers benefits including:
- Increased resiliency – Replication across regions means that your configuration data will still be accessible should a service outage impact your store or any one of the replicas.
- Minimize latency – Now your applications can consume the data locally rather than issuing cross-region requests.
- Optimize request distribution – Replicas and the configuration store have unique applicable request limits, enabling you to distribute requests efficiently to avoid exhausting the request limits on either the replicas or the configuration store.
