Areas and regions

DoubleCloud hosts its Apache Kafka® clusters in multiple locations worldwide. These locations are grouped into Areas which contain one or more Regions:

  • Areas are groups of Regions by geographical proximity. Choose areas that are more relevant to your needs. For example, if the majority of your customers are from the US, it's a good idea to host your clusters in the North America area.

  • Regions are separate geographical sites within the Areas. Choosing the region closest to your location will ensure the best possible latency, fault tolerance and stability.

You can create an Apache Kafka® cluster in the following Areas and regions:
