March comes in like a lion with a new OpenGeo Suite Enterprise Edition release! Most exciting are the new features, including:
Suite Analytics, an interface that allows sysadmins to visualize and analyze server activity and performance. With this tool one can accurately measure traffic loads and use that information to properly configure and optimize server resources.
Styling and editing from inside GeoExplorer. While we still have the stand-alone Styler and GeoEditor applications, map composition is even easier now that all of their features are available right inside GeoExplorer. Edit GeoServer styles right from the layer properties, edit a feature’s attributes, or draw new features from the same web-based tool—no installation necessary.
Upload data through GeoExplorer directly into GeoServer. This precisely mirrors the same process as our GeoServer layer importer, so your layers will be configured and loaded without needing to leave the application.
There are also plenty of other improvements since our previous Enterprise Edition was released back in late 2010. GeoServer has been upgraded to the latest release candidate of 2.1.0, which now includes WMS 1.3—the latest version of the Web Map Service standard so vital to INSPIRE compliance. GeoWebCache has been upgraded to 1.2.4 which includes new features for automatic management of tile storage, among other things. GeoExt has released a stable 1.0 API, so developers can build applications with confidence. And GeoExplorer has many new base layers to choose from, including MapQuest and Bing.
While on a longer release cycle than the Community Edition, the Enterprise Edition is the supported version of the OpenGeo Suite. As such, we ensure that the software is tested and working as it should across all the platforms we support. And of course, our Enterprise clients get unlimited bug fixes, upgrades, and much more. Why not try a free 30-day trial of the OpenGeo Suite Enterprise Edition and explore all of the features not yet available anywhere else?
