Enabling high performance geospatial applications in the cloud
Geospatial technologies have been deployed in the cloud (whether private or public) for quite some time. A common misconception is that cloud-based applications inherently bring about some degree of performance and capability loss compared to powerful desktop-based and GPU-powered applications. That is not necessarily the case: this white paper explains how even GPU-powered, desktop-based geospatial applications can be deployed in the cloud through virtualization. This allows to bring extreme geospatial performance to any user connected with the cloud.
