ERDAS Announces Sun Solaris Support for Image Web Server 8.5

April 29, 2008 -- Norcross, GA -- ERDAS announces that Image Web Server (IWS) 8.5 is now supported on the Sun Solaris (x86) operating system. IWS is a high-speed, specialized server application that efficiently distributes large volumes of geospatial image data. IWS solves the infrastructure congestion problems associated with deploying large amounts of image data, empowering users to quickly access the information they need.

Sun Solaris delivers a high level of performance, stability and security. Sun Solaris spans the entire enterprise: the Web tier, the data warehouse and the most demanding technical software applications.

Recently released, IWS 8.5 provides online image processing of images, transforms and mosaics. This new technology allows the serving of different versions of the same image to desktop, web or server applications. These “virtual images” minimize the duplication of data across the enterprise, ensuring faster deployment of processed images. Users can now automatically receive scale dependent images from Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) compliant Web Mapping Services (WMS), specific to their view. The client application delivers the image for the scale needed, optimizing viewing performance for clients using the WMS protocol. IWS 8.5 also provides greater compatibility and flexibility by including over 3200 predefined coordinate systems, 1100 datum shifts and 50+ mathematical projections, local and global vertical datums.

“We are excited that IWS 8.5 is now available to our customers using the Sun Solaris operating system,” said Mladen Stojic, Senior Vice President, Product Management and Marketing, ERDAS. “A versatile solution, IWS allows massive amounts of imagery to be delivered over the Internet, and to be consumed in a variety of desktop or web applications.”
