Yugabyte Geodistributed Intermittent Network Availability

I am interested in Yugabyte’s ability to be geo-distributed. However, I am wondering if the protocal between the different nodes can tolerate DIL conditions (see: Disconnected, Intermittent and Limited (DIL) [DIDO Wiki] ) where the network is not reliable. Are there timeouts? Can they change? Are there protocols/defaults for collisions?


The database is not supposed to work over unreliable internet connection. It’s supposed to be run in datacenters (at least the synchronous replication).

See yb-master configuration reference | YugabyteDB Docs

There are for asynchronous replication, where last write wins: xCluster replication | YugabyteDB Docs
