How it works as a Data Middleware Platform
Your data (that you select to copy to Data Islands) lives physically where you want it to live (We have servers in the USA, Canada, Europe and the UK). Our databases and API’s are all geographically coded so that you control where the data lives (we use digitalocean) and flows (AWS Gateway API) through the data middleware. If you are in the USA for example your data never travels from that geographic region (unless you want it to).
With Data Islands you do not need to open any ports or access to your network. You only export data you have defined (using SQL for example) out (as opposed to it being pulled out direct from an incoming connection) and so there is no risk or need for trust with those you give access to.
This is possible by installing our console app (see image) in the secure location that can access your data and the data is pushed out (exported) to the Data Islands Middleware Platform.
This is achieved using simple commands and so can be scripted and automated to run at intervals.
