GeoSpock DB Discovery lets you experience the power of GeoSpock DB for yourself
We provide the data; you run the queries
GeoSpock DB Discovery is a query engine that runs in your own cloud environment. Once set up, it will enable you to access a vast library of open source data that is curated, maintained, and stored by GeoSpock.
Discovery enables you to analyse petabytes of data with a hyper-performant query engine without the associated costs typically required for setup and preparation of data of this scale. It provides the perfect sandbox environment to build next-generation applications powered by the world’s most advanced analytics database.
You will need an AWS account into which GeoSpock DB Discovery will be deployed. Some familiarity with AWS services would be useful when creating the deployment, but we don't expect you to be an expert.
You will need some permissions to create certain resources in that account.
GeoSpock DB Discovery will be deployed in your AWS account. The data itself is hosted in GeoSpock's own account. Your deployment will automatically be configured to retrieve the data from GeoSpock's AWS account. We ensure that the GeoSpock DB Discovery deployments are created in the same AWS region as the data (currently the Singapore region), so that data retrieval costs are kept to a minimum.
Once deployed, you connect to the database through a standard JDBC/ODBC connection. You can submit queries directly from the command line, or make a connection from any number of tools (Tableau, PowerBI, etc.). We will direct you to some helpful guides to get you started once your trial is activated.
Explore our expanding library of open source and synthetic datasets. Dive deep into urban planning, census, and environmental data to learn how GeoSpock makes it easy to fuse disparate data types together for complex analysis. Or, go big and test our query engine on an extreme-scale 108 TB, 1.3 trillion row urban mobility dataset, to see what high performance big data analytics really looks like.
GeoSpock DB Discovery is free to license; you pay only for AWS charges incurred over the duration of the trial.
You remain in control – deploy, resize, and tear down your deployments as you wish throughout the course of your access period. Charges include cluster running costs and data access/transfer costs.
Running costs are little more than 25 cents per hour for each machine in your query cluster. Additional charges for network traffic out of your AWS account or out of the supported region will depend on the number of queries and the amount of data retrieved.
We will provide you with contact details for our support team upon setup, so that you can get in touch if you experience a problem during the trial. We will do what we can to help resolve the issue. In some cases, we may ask you to supply or provide access to the logs (AWS Cloudwatch) that the system generates.
