Minimize data movement across networks - Sustainability Pillar

Minimize data movement across networks

Use shared storage and access data from regional data stores to minimize the total networking resources required to support data movement for your workload.


  • Store data as close to the consumer as possible.

  • Partition regionally consumed services so that their Region-specific data is stored within the Region where it is consumed.

  • Use block-level duplication instead of file or object-level duplication when copying changes across the network.

  • Compress data before moving it over the network.
