CockroachDB nodes can be distributed across multiple locations across the globe to ensure that the data can survive outages. Learn about node locality, why this is important in CockroachDB, and how to set this in Kubernetes environments.

Bose is building a platform as a service with CockroachDB. Ordinarily, we think of Bose as a leading audio equipment design and development company, best known for its professional, personal, and car audio systems and noise cancelling headphones but they're also a very talented collection of engineers.
