App development and deployment

We are building a app and what would be the best way to deploy it across multiple countries. Can they all talk to the same back end, or is it best to provide a dedicated back end for each country.

Hi there,

In theory it is possible to have all of your applications connect to the same backend, however this might introduce some network latency and delays. For example, if you have an application in Singapour and your backend is in New York the network delay would definitely be noticeable as Singapore is 12 hours ahead of New York.

Depending on your architecture, it might be more beneficial to have each application deployed together with its own backend service to reduce network latencies.

Feel free to share more details regarding the app itself and the architecture and I could try to advise you further.
