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”
– Richard Prodger, Technical Director, two10degrees
