Mirror Image Implements Geo-Distributed Database Capabilities in Edge Computing Service

Jun 10, 2014

Mirror Image, a provider of edge computing, streaming, and content delivery solutions, announced the production launch of the Geo-Distributed Database service to extend the capability of the company's Edge Computing service to handle big data in real-time at the edge of the internet. Based on ad tech companies' requirements to be able to work with their ever growing data sets at the edge, Mirror Image implemented active, synchronized NoSQL database servers in all Mirror Image data centers worldwide.

The service replicates and synchronizes customers' data sets across the company's patented, global Dynamic Delivery Network (DDN) so that every request accesses identical, synchronized data regardless of the data center that processes the request. This results in the lowest end-to-end latency by servicing each request using the closest data center.
