Boundless of St. Louis, MO introduced on January 30 Boundless Server Enterprise, the first cloud-native geospatial web server designed to take advantage of the cloud’s ability to quickly and easily scale up and out.
Today, more location data is being generated and consumed than ever before, creating increased demand for scalable offerings that deliver application availability and responsiveness. This problem is solved using an entirely new class of GIS server solutions that take full advantage of the cloud. With Boundless Server Enterprise, enterprises now have a high performing, cost effective, and massively scalable way to serve maps to their applications running in the cloud, the company said.
“With the release of Boundless Server Enterprise, Boundless makes yet another leap forward in providing robust map servers using today’s cloud technology. This product solves the biggest GIS data problems on a massive scale and no other product like it exists,” said Andy Dearing, CEO of Boundless. “I am proud of the innovation and expertise displayed by our engineers and could not be more excited that Boundless continues to be a major contributor and force in the geospatial community. As more and more enterprises continue to add maps to their apps, Boundless will be there to support them.”
Boundless Server Enterprise offers massive scalability, high performance, and demand-based provisioning capable of handling millions of requests, according to the company. Enterprise customers are now able to take advantage of the cloud’s elastic ability to add and adjust storage and compute capacity in real-time to accommodate: increased usage; unpredictable usage; spikes in usage; redundancy; and failover using dynamically clustered compute power for optimal responsiveness.
“It is more critical than ever for organizations to have infrastructure that can scale elastically to meet increases in load and demand,” said Anthony Calamito, chief geospatial officer at Boundless. “Boundless Server Enterprise is the first of its kind and represents a next-generation solution that scales for maximum responsiveness today while remaining elastic to handle increases in the future. The result is limitless scalability with better uptime, minimized risk and lower total costs. With this new offering, Boundless is continuing to revolutionize the GIS world.”
