The Geo group develops a product that extends GitLab installation to different geographic locations. This is achieved by replicating the entire GitLab data set to new locations in a coordinated, verifiable and coherent manner. Data can be accessed from any of the locations whilst intelligent proxying techniques guarantee users have access to the most recent data.
This architecture addresses a number of customer problems that includes proximity based data acceleration and disaster recovery.
The Geo group is responsible for three distinct product categories:
Help remote teams work more effectively with faster access to GitLab data by serving data from Geo sites closer in proximity to their geographic location. This solution is built on top of the Geo replication and verification framework to replicate data to the remote sites.
Replicate all critical GitLab data to a secondary site that can be promoted to an active instance in the event of a natural or human-caused disaster. This solution is built on top of the Geo replication and verification framework to replicate data to the secondary disaster recovery site.
Backup and restore all critical GitLab data.
The Geo group works using epics to plan larger efforts. For a visual overview of the epics for both Geo-replication and Disaster Recovery, please have a look at our roadmap. Backup and restore epics will be included at a later stage.
