Has anybody tried running an rqlite cluster across the internet? I've read in here that because of raft and consistency guarantees (on writes?), performance degrades in high latency environment. In the past I've used Cassandra, which has high write throughput even in high latency environments.
If I have an rqlite node running on a user's laptop on US East Coast and it's doing a bunch of local writes and has a leader on the US West Coast, am I going to Have A Bad Time™? It seems like the advice it to batch large transactions, which makes sense... but is there a WAL that does compactions and allows local nodes to write at high volumes and "eventually" get the updates to the leader?
Thanks... awesome project, I love it.
