Containerized geospatial infrastructure

For data centers, the container technology came at the right time: By simply " shelving" the software, small-scale processes are eliminated, so considerably less expert knowledge is required in terms of individual software installation. deegree.PRO was adapted at an early stage so that it can be delivered to customers packaged in containers, where it is installed via download. This reduces the effort required for each update to a minimum. For the users, grit GmbH and its employees are available to close any knowledge gaps.
