I need some advice regarding external APIs.
I need to use an external API to lookup data from an external database to check professional credentials of my users. Users enter their professional registration number and I run a lookup using the Bubble API connector.
All users of my app are in the UK, so will make the request to the Bubble app from the UK.
I understand the Bubble data centres are hosted in the US.
I can choose where I want to host the external database. Is it better from an API performance perspective to host the external database nearer the Bubble data centre (i.e in the US) or nearer to the Users (i.e in the UK)?
