Performance Improvements And Duplicate Removal

GeoDB has recently undergone the following major improvements:

  • DB query optimizations together with LRU caching
  • JVM garbage collection tuning
  • Migration to a GCP Kubernetes 3-node regional cluster
  • Import algorithm updates to remove places with the same name occurring within a localized radius of each other

This has resulted in:

  • Significantly improved backend latencies averaging less than 100 milliseconds (in addition to less variability around the average)
  • Virtual elimination of duplicate-named places within a given locality

Further latency improvements will be made as new regional clusters are stood up to service continually growing usage.


Thank you for your support and looking forward to seeing all the ways you put the service to use...and Merry Christmas!
