How to lower the latency of requests to the DB

We currently have 2 servers in the NYC3 region, the first is a web service (django) and the second a postgresql BD. It turns out that we are migrating the web service to kubernetes. We configure some clusters in the same region (NYC3) and we raise the web service, but the latency in the requests to the BD (External server but in the same region) is too high, which leads to very long pages loading times. What can I do, I don’t want to migrate the DB to a kubernetes. Can I improve latency in any way?

Hi @felipegarridov

Since everything you mentioned is in the same region, NYC3, are you sure you are using the Private Network IPs to connect?

  1. Make sure you enable the private network on both servers, you can follow this guide
  2. Use the private IP instead of the public one to connect to your database from your web app

You should see a huge latency improvement.
