Scaling PostgreSQL Django

We are running a SaaS on a Centos7 server (located in Amsterdam) with Django and Postgres. Most of our customers has so far been located in Europe, but more and more are coming from Asia. The thing is that the the loading times from Asia is quite slow, and therefor we thinking about how to solve this. Is it possible to have a new droplet in Asia and somehow mirror that one to the “origin” in Amsterdam? Is there any quick way to do this?

In this guide, we'll configure Nginx to detect and redirect customers to a subdomain that points to a more geographically appropriate server.
