Amazon DocumentDB Now Includes Global Clusters

With distributed architecture regarded as one of the benefits of NoSQL (or non-relational) databases, Amazon DocumentDB is filling a critical gap with a new multi-region capability dubbed “Global Clusters” by AWS.

AWS is now expanding these capabilities across geographies. While a single primary instance remains for writes, the Global Clusters functionality will support read-only secondary instances in up to five remote locations.
