vGIS Deployment Options

vGIS was created for ease of deployment, speed, scalability, and security. vGIS relies on Microsoft Azure architecture to maintain high security and availability while reducing costs with an energy-efficient infrastructure that spans more than one hundred facilities worldwide.

Getting started with vGIS is fast and easy. Each company is set up as a secure tenant within the system, which eliminates long and costly implementations. The ease of implementation is reflected in the typical onboarding duration. The fastest deployment we’ve done was 48 seconds. vGIS can also be deployed in a private Azure cloud to give its clients full control over the data.

The system connects to BIM and GIS data hosted in Esri ArcGIS, Bentley iTwin, GeoJSON and many other formats using optimized integration points. Adding a new data source to the system takes only a few mouse clicks.

vGIS clients may have unique data-residency, organizational, or regional requirements that must be considered when deploying the system. In order to comply with these requirements, vGIS offers a variety of deployment options.

Cost-efficient, scalable, and secure multitenant solutions are provided by a vGIS Azure cloud. Speed of deployment is combined with high availability and performance to provide a modern cloud-based system that works anywhere.

vGIS can be hosted in a private Azure cloud. A private cloud gives clients many of the same benefits of a public cloud—including self-service, scalability, and elasticity—with the additional control and customization available from dedicated resources over a computing infrastructure hosted on the premises.

We offer local country hosting designed to comply with data-residency requirements. The client’s vGIS instance can be deployed in one of 54 regions supported by Microsoft Azure to bring applications closer to the user, preserving data residency and offering comprehensive compliance and resiliency options.
