SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OneOcean Corporation (OneOceanCorp.com), a technology company devoted to solving the ocean’s big data problem, today announced the beta release of ClipCard™, its cloud-based innovation for managing, accessing and exchanging marine geospatial data.
“Looking at the size of this problem, we asked ourselves: how can we help?”
Ocean data can come in more than 100 file formats, reach terabytes in size, and take a week to download. Users have limited tools for managing their own holdings and even more limited means of exchanging huge files with others. Because of the sheer magnitude of the data, valuable information remains dormant behind firewalls or on shelves, much of it used only once and then forgotten.
With ClipCard, it is now possible to instantly view and share key information from big ocean data, anytime, anywhere, without the need to transfer the data itself.
ClipCard presents a rich abstract of big data in a useful object that is created anytime data is uploaded to the cloud. ClipCard is linked to its source, but is only a fraction of the size, so it can be viewed and shared anywhere. ClipCard helps users understand what big data contains, and gives them the means to transfer the source data through the cloud when they need it.
OneOcean has partnered with Amazon.com, leveraging Amazon Web Services to provide a robust global cloud storage and fulfillment infrastructure. With Amazon’s industry-leading web services technology, OneOcean users have multiple options for managing, accessing, and exchanging their data on every continent.
“Data is growing exponentially in volume, velocity, and variety. The challenge is putting it to work efficiently and effectively - getting it out of its silos and into the hands of the people who need it,” said Ed Lazowska, Bill and Melinda Gates Chair of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. “OneOcean is working on a promising approach that could have a major impact on how big data is managed and shared across industry, academia, and government.”
“Looking at the size of this problem, we asked ourselves: how can we help?” said Don Pickering, CEO of OneOcean. “ClipCard became our answer. It’s a simple solution that has a lot of potential to change the way people get value from their ocean data. We’re excited about the partners who have already started working with OneOcean to leverage ClipCard with their technologies.”
With data plans starting as low as $25 per month for 50GB of data storage and transfer, OneOcean offers an online service designed for easy use by anyone with ocean data to manage.
For larger organizations, OneOcean offers enterprise-level plans scaling to terabytes of data with a premium services support team ready to assist corporations, universities and government institutions in their efforts to manage and exchange current project data, as well as rediscover and reuse shelved data.
