Datahub now live

Very pleased that now, we have our first venture into the brave new world of the cloud. Despite Larry Ellison's disdain for the term, I like it.

The OS OpenData was made available to the general public and we've been busy uploading the data and rendering it through ArcGIS Server. Version 1.0 of the service went live in time for the ESRI (UK) 2010 User Conference.
We have now released version 2.0 of the our service, using the free data and it includes separate mapservices for Meridian2 data, Panorama and Strategi. Release 3.0 will see OS VectorMap District being added to the list. All will be cached and highly available.

Overall, we are very pleased with the speed of the service and look forward to expanding the work more.
