Motorola Chooses Microsoft Azure for Cloud-Based Public-Safety Software
Monday, November 12, 2018 | Comments

Motorola Solutions selected Microsoft Azure Government as the cloud provider for its public-safety software suite. Azure Government provides the flexibility and security that public-safety agencies require as they adopt cloud-based public-safety software, a statement said.

Motorola said its customer agencies meet their unique operating requirements by running hybrid architectures that combine both on-premises and cloud solutions. A hybrid approach maximizes investments in current on-premises applications while providing a path to future cloud-based software and capabilities.

“Cloud computing is used by government agencies around the world, and we are excited to bring the benefits of cloud to our public-safety customers,” said Andrew Sinclair, corporate vice president and general manager, software enterprise, Motorola Solutions. “By working with Microsoft, we have the right partner to enhance our customers’ current on-premises systems as we continue to develop next-generation software and capabilities for them, in the cloud.”

In addition to supporting hybrid deployments for public-safety customers, Motorola Solutions also provides a number of cloud-based products. Security is at the core of Azure Government, which provides eight geographically distributed, highly available government-only datacenter regions that do not host commercial data. Only U.S. federal, the Department of Defense (DoD), state and local governments and their partners have access to this dedicated instance of Azure operated by screened U.S. persons.
