In addition to servicing Client instances of the MYRIAD application, MYRIAD Group Technologies Ltd (MGTL) also provides a managed hosting service for robust and secure delivery of Client MYRIAD instances.
Google Cloud Platform
After a rigorous selection process and comprehensive testing of the target Cloud environment and services, MGTL has deployed multiple applications in client-dedicated self-contained Google Cloud Platform (GCP) projects. This has allowed for enhancements to the architecture of secure hosting and the provision of additional management services.
Not least, MGTL has adopted new opportunities to align with benchmarks and frameworks such as CIS (Centre for Internet Security) and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).
Where MGTL provides hosting of MYRIAD instances, discrete zones are utilised to sustain geographical segregation. Cloud hosting offers dynamic options and with GCP’s diverse range of zones and regions available worldwide (https://cloud.google.com/about/locations), MGTL hosts Client data across these locations as required by Client’s jurisdictional data residency, and technical requirements.
We also leverage our ability to mix GCP regions, for instance having a platform Production instance located in one region and the non-Production instances in a different region, further strengthening the geographical segregation element of our Business Continuity Plan.
Furthermore, GCP allows MGTL to provide carbon footprint reporting to our Clients, in line with our ESG Policies and goals, and incorporate this information into decision making processes.
