Product Strategy - Geo


This page contains the product strategy for the Geo group. The Geo group enables users to distribute GitLab to different locations and use those Geo nodes for disaster recovery purposes. The Geo group is responsible for two distinct product categories:

Category Description
Geo-replication How we help our users bring their data closer
Disaster Recovery How our users recover from natural or human-caused disasters

If you'd like to discuss this strategy directly with the product manager for Geo, please feel free to reach out to Fabian Zimmer via e-mail


The Geo group works using epics to plan larger efforts. For a visual overview of the epics required to reach viable maturity for both Geo-replication and Disaster Recovery, please have a look at our roadmap.
