OneOcean Signs Inaugural Customer, TerraSond
Global surveyor to leverage OneOcean’s ClipCard platform to manage and access 19 years of valuable ocean data via the cloud
OneOcean Corporation, which recently introduced its ClipCard platform and cloud-based service for managing marine geospatial data, today announced the onboarding of its first enterprise customer, precision surveyor TerraSond Limited.
As a OneOcean customer, TerraSond is taking an innovative approach to managing over 50 terabytes (TB) of bathymetric and other hydrographic survey data – digital assets accumulated in more than 15 countries since its founding in 1994.
“We’ve been collecting data for nearly two decades” said Tom Newman, CEO and co-founder of TerraSond. “But we have been hard pressed to visually organize all of that work in a single place, and we have been seeking an efficient way to manage the data itself across our growing global footprint. With OneOcean, we believe we have found a solution to both of these challenges.”
OneOcean’s ClipCard platform gives TerraSond a summary of its worldwide data holdings that is searchable and spatially organized. Each ClipCard is a rich abstract of a unique file or dataset that TerraSond has collected, linked to its source but only a fraction of the size. With OneOcean’s global cloud infrastructure backed by Amazon Web Services, TerraSond can use the ClipCard platform to grant secure access to source data on any continent when it’s needed.
TerraSond began onboarding with OneOcean immediately following the February 19 beta release of the ClipCard platform, taking advantage of OneOcean’s Premium Services team to help inventory and organize their data holdings and begin uploading data to the cloud. TerraSond has implemented the OneOcean service to manage its existing repository of data and offer a convenient means of delivering new data to clients.
