A client of ours is in the space industry, providing space-related educational STEM programs to schools. As part of their partnership with Axiom’s recent AX-2 mission, we re-developed a web portal to allow it to support many more users (the requirements specified 1 million) and to meet the requirement that all hosting was in Saudi Arabia. The portal was used by students in Saudi Arabia to work on the experiments that Saudi astronauts conducted in space.

AWS and Azure have announced data centers in Saudi Arabia but they aren’t open yet, so we had to move the application hosting from AWS to an Oracle Cloud data center in Jeddah.
