Introducing Boundless Server Enterprise: The First Cloud-Native GIS Server
Boundless Server Enterprise offers massive 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. Key advantages include:
- Cloud-native deployment built on the proven open-source GeoServer project. Boundless Server Enterprise takes full advantage of cloud architecture and continues to demonstrate innovation and commitment by Boundless in the open geospatial community.
- Increased performance and availability through elastic scalability. Finally, a geospatial server that can support millions of layers at explosive speed.
- Lowers 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.
