Canada C3 is a signature project to mark Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation. The focus of the project is a 150-day sailing journey from Toronto to Victoria via the Northwest Passage that will connect Canadians from coast, to coast, to coast and inspire a deeper understanding of their country.
Over the course of the expedition, the Canada C3 team and participants on-board (including scientists, artists, Indigenous Elders, historians, community leaders, youth, journalists and educators) will publish a running dialogue via numerous digital platforms to connect Canadians, wherever they are in the world.
Iridium are supporting the Canada C3 project in several ways including the loan of an Iridium GO! satellite-tracking device. The device has been connected to the Global Alerting Platform (GAP) which has allowed the Canada C3 team to provide a public map on their website, enabling supporters to keep up-to-date with the ship’s progress in real-time.
You can track the progress on the GAP Public Map or on the Canada C3 website.
two10degrees is proud to announce that its Global Alerting Platform (GAP) has now been deployed into the Microsoft data centre in Virginia, USA.
Currently operating from Microsoft data centres across the world including Chicago, Sydney and Dublin, GAP is a global platform for satellite and cellular messaging and alerting. GAP is the power behind some of the world’s foremost tracking and telemetry systems and is used every day by thousands of people for global communications and safety management.
Microsoft and two10degrees alike, are continuously investing in the latest infrastructure technologies, with a focus on high reliability, operational excellence, cost-effectiveness, environmental sustainability, and a trustworthy online experience for customers and partners worldwide.
Microsoft has data centre capacity to support customers in regions throughout the world, meaning GAP can equally be available in these areas too. Microsoft’s global network of data centres include more than one million servers in more than 100 data centres, including Amsterdam; Australia; Boydton, VA; Brazil; Cheyenne, WY; China; Chicago, IL; Des Moines, IA; Dublin, Ireland; Hong Kong; Japan; Quincy, WA; and San Antonio, TX.
Many compliance regulations now dictate that data must be kept in the country in which the consumer operates. Organisations are faced with a growing number of data compliance demands that must be adhered to, including contractual obligations, technical needs, customer or partner related obligations or security and confidentiality concerns.
“With Azure now available in over 140 countries, all backed by Microsoft’s $15 billion investment in global data centre infrastructure, gives us the confidence that we can deploy our applications and services in the geographical locations most appropriate for our customers”
