About Us

What do we do and where have we come from!

Who is Airdrive ?

Airdrive is run as a independent website airdrive.co.za, it is a cornerstone product of Polygon Technologies and the Creator of "the GSM Commander" www.gsmcommander.com. The Airdrive Server is Locally Hosted in South Africa in one of the Largest Data Centers in South Africa.

What is Airdrive Remote Monitoring ?

Airdrive Remote monitoring is an Value Added Service to the GSM Commander Hardware, Airdrive allows you to view information that is "logged" to the Platform from the GSM Commander Hardware (www.gsmcommander.com). When the GSM Commander is enabled to log to the Server this information is shown on the Web Platform.

What technologies do we use ?

We are proudly Open Source friendly, we promote the use of Open Source Technologies, like PHP, Apache and mySQL.

Web Platform: We use HTML5/CSS3, Jquery and PHP for our Web Platform, the reason why we have chosen this platform is the fact that these technologies are open source and fastly becoming the industry standard. This Platform also provides the best scalability on high volume data.

Server Platform: Java was chosen for the fact that it is a age old tested platform and runs everywhere, Also the fact that it is open Source was a big benefit for our System Strategy. Technologies like the Netty Socket Framework provided a high network scalability therefore it is also a very good platform to use.
