Subject Re: DataCenters each with their own local data source

Distributing writes to all D.C.s? or reads?

If each D.C. has data specific to that particular geo, why do you have to
read from remote D.C. ?

You can easily incorporate logic to re-direct operation(either write/read)
to appropriate(local) D.C.

Still wondering why you want to do so?. Am assuming you want to store data
as per I.P. (geo location data) ..Anyways, it was not very clear from your
question what you are trying to do.
