Microsoft Azure & PaaS

Microsoft Azure is an open, flexible cloud platform that enables business process experts like GEP to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. The datacenters are designed and constructed with stringent levels of physical security and access control, power redundancy and efficiency, environmental control and state-of-the-art recoverability capabilities.

And they are the same datacenters that run many of the world's largest online services. The physical facilities have achieved broad industry compliance, including ISO 27001 and SOC / SSAE 16 / SAS 70 Type II and within the United States, FISMA certification.

Work Without Downtime

Microsoft Azure delivers a 99.95 percent monthly SLA, powering highly available applications with automatic OS and service patching, built-in network load balancing and resiliency to hardware failure. That means, we can innovate on or upgrade your tool set without downtime.

Microsoft Azure is built for security and scale. So GEP can provision resources within minutes, elastically growing or cutting back resource usage based on your needs. And Microsoft Azure is available in multiple datacenters around the world, enabling GEP to deploy wherever you are.
