GAP is a global platform for satellite and cellular messaging and alerting. It’s 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.
GAP takes full advantage of the Microsoft Azure Platform. The Azure Platform is supported by a growing network of Microsoft-managed data centres. Microsoft has decades of experience running services such as Bing, Office 365 and outlook.com. Microsoft is 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.
Azure is generally available in 22 regions around the world, and has announced plans for 8 additional regions, meaning GAP can equally be available in these areas too. Geographic expansion is a priority for Azure to help customers achieve higher performance and to support their requirements and preferences regarding data storage locations.
Many compliance regulations now mandate that data must be kept in the country in which the consumer operates. Organisations are faced with 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 140 countries, including China, 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”
– Richard Prodger, Technical Director, two10degrees
