In a geo-cluster, data is stored on two or more nodes in geographically separated locations. If one node fails, the service continues to run from the other location. Thus, geo-clusters are characterised by high availability and help prevent data loss.
The geo-cluster is a lifesaver in the case of a data centre fire or another disaster that destroys a customer’s servers. All data will be available quickly, thanks to the replication to a second location.
