The events of the past year have underscored the urgency of creating business resilience and agility to more quickly take on the challenges created by volatile market conditions. In previous blogs, we have detailed the importance of choosing an integration solution that provides the flexibility to deploy into a variety of technology environments in order to meet future and present business and technical needs, as well as the necessity of expanding the pool of integrations across the company to boost business agility by accelerating integrations.
The Benefits of Global Deployment
In addition to the above factors, it is also important to choose an integration solution that provides the geographic flexibility to deploy to a variety of locations across the globe. Global deployment can provide multiple advantages, including:
Improved Latency: If your applications are deployed in Europe but your integrations are deployed in Australia, the distance could cause poor performance due to increased network latency. Applications and integrations should be deployed within the same geographic region in order to reduce latency and improve performance.
Data Sovereignty: Some regions and states have local laws requiring their citizens’ data be hosted within that country or region. For example, the European Union’s GDPR legislation regulates the exportation of personal data outside of the EU, as well as other regulations designed to protect the personal data of EU citizens. A geographic deployment strategy gives you the resilience needed to meet any current and future legal requirements.
Failover: Creating redundant versions of apps and placing them in data centers across multiple regions provides a back-up, protecting your systems from going down due to localized outages.
Ecosystem Cloud Capabilities: Vendors like AWS and AZURE do not necessarily provide all of their services in every datacenter. You need the flexibility to host apps in the data center region that provides all the services your business may require.
