YugabyteDB’s rich deployment and replication options are a must for any developer or technologist building a modern, distributed cloud application. In geo-distributed environments, performance, developer convenience, and compliance are key requirements that organizations must design in their data layer – to avoid the trap of assuming that they will magically exist simply because an application is located in the cloud.

YugabyteDB 2.13 is the latest version, providing better control over where data is stored and accessed, a key feature of modern applications in a geo-distributed environment. Built-in capabilities allow businesses to reduce data transmission costs, improve productivity and ensure regulatory compliance. The latest version of YugabyteDB expands the capabilities of geo-allocation of the database by adding new features that improve performance, increase control over archiving and intelligently use local data for reading.

Today, YugabyteDB’s distributed SQL database helps thousands of developers speed up cloud flexibility, reduce costs, and reduce risks without locking up the provider. This allows them to focus on business growth and spend less time managing complex data infrastructure. Let’s take a look at nine key features in the latest version of YugabyteDB.

Regional local data and cloud archiving

YugabyteDB disseminates and stores data within geographic regions to help organizations with data domicile regulations such as the GDPR in Europe. We expect additional legal jurisdictions to adopt similar laws next year. This means that modern database management systems must provide simple, natural functionality to help organizations meet new and updated compliance requirements.

YugabyteDB 2.13 allows organizations to control where database backups are located by explicitly limiting them to specific geographic regions. Based on the location of the data defined at the time the table was created, each TServer saves files only to the backup destination that corresponds to the configured region.

In addition to meeting these data domicile requirements, storing data in cloud regions reduces the cost of cloud data transfer by avoiding interregional data copying.
