From today, D4H products will have the option to be hosted from our new segregated data hosting jurisdiction with Amazon Web Services in Sydney, Australia. Earlier in the week, we welcomed our first accounts on the infrastructure, a State Police Force in Australia and a regional council in New Zealand.
This brings our Asia Pacific offering up to global performance par with our other data jurisdiction options in the United States, Canada, and the European Union. It adds encryption at rest, database mirroring and real-time hot-standby failovers.
With our jurisdiction-specific options, data will be solely stored in the jurisdiction, identical to the other AWS sites that D4H has around the world.
“We take pride in localizing D4H’s cloud software solutions around the world.” said D4H Technologies CEO, Robin Blandford, with the software now operating for over 16 countries.
What does it mean for users?
Increased Performance Many factors have an influence on cloud software performance. Distance is one of those. The shorter the distance data has to travel, the faster any cloud software will run. Knowing this, one of the most significant advantages of our Asia Pacific data center is an increase in speed and performance for the region.
Data Sovereignty Apart from performance, some emergency response organizations that operate in the Asia-Pacific region must store their data within specific jurisdictions. D4H’s new data center gives organizations in the region an option to process data so that it never leaves the Asian-Pacific borders – which allows for easier compliance.
Increased Security Amazon Web Services offer the latest security technologies, adding extra protection layers for data stored there. We offer a high-compliance security guarantee to all jurisdictions. All data is protected, private, and encrypted to keep it safe.
