BETHESDA, MD and RESTON, VA--(Marketwired - November 10, 2016) - Terra Pixel, an Open Geospatial imagery streaming service provider, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, today announced that Terra Pixel's Streamap solution is now available through Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace for the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC).
AWS Marketplace for the U.S. IC is designed exclusively for the 17 intelligence agencies to evaluate, purchase, and deploy in minutes via 1-Click® a broad array of common software infrastructure, developer tools, and business software products, with the categories of products and vendors growing over time.
Terra Pixel's Dr. Andrew Palowitch commented: "As the commercial industry and government agencies transition from downloading imagery data to streaming analytics, we are privileged and excited about the collaboration with Carahsoft and AWS to contribute to our national programs."
Terra Pixel's Streamap platform eliminates traditional geospatial data management challenges, such as massive storage requirements, expansive processing power, and time-consuming proprietary integrations, by using the power, scalability and agility of cloud computing to normalize, index, share, search and subscribe to Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards-based geospatial data sets.
"We're excited to expand our portfolio of solutions available on AWS Marketplace for the U.S. IC with Terra Pixel's Streamap platform. With the marketplace's 1-Click® feature, our IC customers can now easily access Terra Pixel to become their own OGC standards-based content providers and subscribers within minutes and at competitive prices," said Matt Rattigan, Manager of AWS Marketplace Solutions at Carahsoft.
With Terra Pixel's Streamap web service, agencies can store their geospatial data, thus making it discoverable and accessible outside of the original data source. Moreover, the streaming service is reliable and scalable, allowing agencies to reduce costs and focus on geospatial application development.
"Geospatial data content management historically has been very expensive and time-consuming. However, Terra Pixel's Streamap cloud platform maximizes the value of geospatial data by unlocking it from propriety data standards which makes the process accessible, efficient, and scalable," said Tiffany Goddard, Director of Geospatial Solutions at Carahsoft. "We are pleased to help Terra Pixel and our reseller ecosystem partners provide cost-saving and scalable geospatial data management solutions to the intelligence community via AWS Marketplace for the U.S. IC."
AWS Marketplace for the U.S. IC provides the same purchasing convenience, open and transparent license terms and conditions, and variety of pricing models, including hourly usage and annual subscription, as the commercial AWS Marketplace. It also supports Bring-Your-Own-License (BYOL) so that agencies can more easily migrate existing software licenses and applications. AWS Marketplace for the U.S. IC is part of the Commercial Cloud Services (C2S) program, under the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Intelligence Community (IC) Information Technology Enterprise (IC ITE).
