Skygone Launches Marketplace for Cloud GIS Apps

Skygone, an GIS cloud computing company, has launched a marketplace today for pre-configured GIS applications hosted on their cloud infrastructure. TheGISMarketplace.com allows users to search, compare, and buy hosted solutions from many leading GIS vendors.

Currently, the software offerings include MapServer, ArcGIS Server , and GeoServer. Skygone says its working with other GIS software vendors and will add new apps to the marketplace as they become available.

The pricing includes hosting, but in some cases the apps are proprietary and additional licensing fees apply.

Skyline offers a number of enterprise services, including SaaS and system design. Part of their focus is on GIS services, including hosting, map caching, and app-enablement for GIS developers.

With the increasing interest in and capabilities of GIS technologies, many GIS services are moving to the cloud to solve both hardware and software needs. And in response, many businesses are offering simple deployment tools and turnkey solutions for cloud-based GIS services. ReadWriteWeb reported last month, for example, that ESRI was offering a bundle with its ArcGIS Server instance launched on Amazon‘s E3 infrastructure.
