OneOcean launches cloud-based service for marine geospatial data

As data collection and processing technologies have advanced, so too has the volume and size of ocean data. The sheer magnitude of marine geospatial information has far outpaced the ability to efficiently and effectively manage it.

“Data is growing exponentially in volume, velocity, and variety. The challenge is putting it to work efficiently and effectively – getting it out of its silos and into the hands of the people who need it,” said Ed Lazowska, Bill and Melinda Gates Chair of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. “OneOcean is working on a promising approach that could have a major impact on how big data is managed and shared across industry, academia, and government.”

With the ClipCard platform, OneOcean combines the power of cloud storage and computing with emerging data abstraction and visualization technology to evolve big data management, access and exchange.

OneOcean’s ClipCard presents a rich abstract of big data in a useful object that is created anytime data is uploaded to the cloud. ClipCard is linked to its source, but is only a fraction of the size, so it can be viewed and shared anywhere. ClipCard helps users understand what big data contains, and gives them the means to transfer the source data through the cloud when they need it.

OneOcean has partnered with Amazon.com, leveraging Amazon Web Services to provide a robust global cloud storage and fulfillment infrastructure. With Amazon’s industry-leading technology, OneOcean users have multiple options for accessing their data on every continent.

OneOcean offers Data Plans starting as low as $25 per month for 50GB of data storage and transfer. For larger organizations, OneOcean offers enterprise-level service plans scaling to terabytes of data with a premium services support team ready to a jump-start projects and adapt the service to meet specific customer needs.

OneOcean’s ClipCard brings the power and intelligence of cloud services to ocean data, allowing researchers, governments and industries to take command of their marine geospatial information.
