Gatineau, QC, Canada, November 13, 2018 – CubeWerx announced today it has signed a four-year contract to provide managed imagery services to the Saskatchewan Geospatial Imagery Collaborative (SGIC). CubeWerx successfully completed porting SGIC’s FlySask system to Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Canada. Under this new contract, CubeWerx will host-manage the FlySask system, which provides access to high-quality aerial and satellite imagery through Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) services to the Collaborative’s many member organizations across the province and in the federal government.
The AWS Cloud is a collection of remote computing resources that together make up a cloud computing platform offered by Amazon.com.
“During the last three years, the FlySask system served imagery services to more than 6.6 million SGIC users. CubeWerx web services technology delivered on its promises to provide a faster and more reliable service at better costs,” said Ian Radchenko, SGIC Project Manager and Research Scientist at the Saskatchewan Research Council. “This new contract using the AWS Cloud in Canada allows the SGIC collaborative to scale up services and serve more than 600,000 users per month.”
