Can I have my cluster peers deployed around the world?

Yes, the consensus.raft section of the Configuration provides options to adjust the delays and timeouts to deployments with higher network latencies. There are more details in the Deployment documentation.

I have trouble running the ipfs/ipfs-cluster Docker container

Check the Docker documentation section section. The ipfs-cluster container does not run IPFS, so you need to run it separately and adjust the service.json configuration according to your Docker networking choices.

Do you have a docker-compose.yml I can use?

Yes, check the Docker documentation section section. We have an example docker-compose template to run a small cluster.
