General Availability: App Configuration geo-replication
Published date: 12 April, 2023
Geo-replication is now Generally Available for Azure App Configuration.
This feature allows you to replicate your configuration store to the regions of your choice. Changes to key-values are synchronized across each replica with eventual consistency. This feature provides multiple advantages:
- Added resiliency for Azure outages: Applications consuming configuration data can rely on replicas in unaffected regions in case of an outage in one of the regions.
- Reduced latency: Having replicas located closer to your users leads to quicker response times and improved data flow.
- Distributed request load: Locating replicas in multiple regions allows you to distribute the request load and reduce the risk of exhausting request limits.
