You may notice that from today the Kea Database loads much faster than before, and that’s because Kea Database data is now hosted in New Zealand! Courtesy of the open source experts at Catalyst, it’s now living on the powerful GIS Core platform, using the Catalyst Cloud.
Founded in Wellington and now spanning the globe, Catalyst has been providing expert technology solutions for over 20 years. Being an open source company they are an ideal match for an open source project such as this one. Their GIS Core solution offers a fully managed one-click solution for storing, managing and publishing spatial data—a compelling alternative to costly proprietary systems.
Similarly, Catalyst Cloud is a state-of-the-art publicly available cloud hosted across three regions of New Zealand. Not only that, Catalyst Cloud purchases power from renewable generation companies to help reduce their carbon footprint—a great fit for a project that aims to support conservation and the environment.
We’re grateful to have the sponsorship of Catalyst and the GIS Core team and encourage you to check out their software and services.
