In order to assimilate the enormous amount of resultant data that is captured, the Swift Geospatial R&D team has utilised a cloud-based storage system in order to safely store the high resolution imagery. This service is furthermore deployed within Amazon Web Services (AWS), which has been selected for the reliable, safe archiving of the valuable data.
Through our partnership with Esri inc., we have deployed Esri’s ArcGIS Enterprise servers located in Frankfurt, Germany; Oregon, U.S.A. as well as Cape Town, South Africa.
Our May 2020 blog post ‘Moving to AWS’ describes this platform in more detail. By taking advantage of cloud infrastructure, we have reduced the time taken to acquire data, process data and deliver results.
In addition, cloud-based processing means that the hardware utilised is always the latest, is maintained and has on-demand redundancy. Furthermore, cloud infrastructure offers inherent security and fall over protection, with a guarantee of 99.99% uptime.
- In January 2020, Swift Geospatial was promoted by the Esri startups program to the official Silver Tier Partnership. We are also the proud winner of the Analytics to Insights 2021 Award of the Esri Partner Conference. See our grateful announcement here.
