Issues in Multi Leader Replication

Some of the problems with multi-leader replication include:

  • Copies of the same data being modified concurrently in different datacenters requiring conflict resolution.

  • Writes being lost from a data center that experiences permanent failure if they haven’t been replicated to other leaders.

  • In case of databases, auto incrementing keys, triggers, and integrity constraints can be problematic to handle.
