Cross-Region Replicas

MariaDB SkySQL supports cross-region replicas for Disaster Recovery (DR). Cross-region replicas for DR are available to Power Tier customers on GCP.

With Cross-Region Replicas for DR, data is replicated from a MariaDB Platform for Transactions service in Transactional Standalone or HA (Primary/Replica) topology to a different supported region.

Cross-Region Replicas do not support High Availability (HA) and are sensitive to latency.

Enable Cross-Region Replicas

Power Tier customers can enable Cross-Region Replicas at time of service launch by checking the "Enable cross-region disaster recovery replica" checkbox and selecting the region where the Replica will be located.
