Boundless Unveils Cloud-Native Geospatial Server

Boundless, a provider of open GIS, today is unveiling Boundless Server Enterprise, a cloud-native geospatial web server designed to take advantage of the cloud’s ability to scale up and out.

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, according to the vendor.

 “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 scalability, high performance, and demand-based provisioning capable of handling millions of requests.

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. Built with a flexible architecture that allows organizations to easily manage location data, Boundless Server Enterprise is the top choice for today’s leading organizations.

Other features include:

  • Cloud-native deployment built on the proven open-source GeoServer project.
  • Increased performance and availability through elastic scalability.
  • Lower cost by utilizing only the cloud resources needed at any given time and avoiding software license models which are based on number of servers or users.
  • Ease of use with self-contained installation, simple configuration and operation, and performance monitoring.

Boundless offers a complete open GIS solution through a combination of technology, products and expertise, giving enterprises deeper intelligence and insights into their location-based data.

The Boundless platform is built upon open source technology and open APIs that generate actionable location intelligence across third-party apps, content services, and plugins for enterprise applications.
