The entire Harrier Central technology stack is built within the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. Although this is a more expensive option than many other cloud providers or a privately hosted server, we have selected Azure for its security, ease of administration, ability to scale globally and broad range of built-in functions.
Currently our main database is hosted in the Northern Europe data center located in Ireland with a redundant backup held in the Western Europe data center located in Amsterdam. As our user base expands, we plan geo-replicate this database to Azure data centers located in the United States, Hong Kong, China and Australia. This will further ensure redundancy and improve performance for our global user base.
