AFAIK storage nodes get selected on quickest response. I believe it is correct to assume that normally the succeeding nodes will be close to uploader.
But what if up- and downloader are located in different regions?
For example:There is an application for world wide use. But data uploading and processing is done mainly in let’s say India by a contractor.
Would that result in having the data uploaded mainly to nodes in the India region, potentially resulting in slow downloading for customers outside of that region? Or is there some algorithm in place that distributes the data nearer to the downloaders where it belongs in such case?
