CMC Cloud Hosting

Continental Mapping has been hosting data in the cloud since 2016 and currently maintains over a petabyte of geospatial data – source, derived products, and analytics – on various cloud hosting platforms. Data centers coast to coast minimize the distance between clients and the provided data and can easily be extended globally to “follow the sun”. Continental Mapping provides “four 9s” up-time (99.99%) and “nine 9s” durability (99.999999999%) ensuring virtually no down time or data loss providing our clients continuous, around-the-clock access to the data.
