currently: not yet in production, but running a dev instance on Galaxy against an mLab db. this is working fine.
soon, we want to go to production. we are targeting the US and China for launch, which tells me i want to deploy to datacenters in those regions.
or does it? how do others handle such deploys? how do others keep data in sync across regions? or do others deploy to one region and CDN their way to users globally?
- we are a small shop w/ zero devOps experience
- we will have budget for running production (i.e. i won’t complain that it costs more than $31 USD to host a db)
- i’m looking for the most performance/reliability for the least amount of hassle
i know Galaxy is not yet in Asia, so i’m simultaneously wondering about the best alternatives for our situation, and if we should simply proceed with Galaxy and see what happens later.
i know this post is a little unfocused, sorry for that, but i am unschooled in all matters devOps. help is appreciated.
