I am looking for suitable COTS GIS server product for Linux platform. The product should allow 500 Clients concurrently and should have Java / C++ development APIs. So far I found ESRI ArcGIS server which supports for Linux. I need few more products which have good performance like ESRI. Kindly share the list of available COTS (Commercial off the shelf) GIS server products.

    is there some specific meaning of COTS for you or is this just a question of Web GIS on Linux?

  • I'm curious to see the answers to this one. Can you tell us why you don't want to run Windows though?

    What are requirements for that GIS server (what services it should support, etc)? Nov 28, 2012 at 14:13

These are my two favorite which run on linux. I believe they do meet your requirements.

Even though they are free, you can pay for support. "linux is free if your time is worthless" (for "free" as in cost - "free" as in freedom isn't about money...





There are also "products" built out of these, such as the OpenGeo Suite

  • I don't think these are commercial off the shelf software.

    I think you would be hard pressed to find lots of commercial GIS server software on a Linux platform.

    @R.K. Fair enough, but you could always pay for support.

    @R.K. Good Idea. Not sure I'm up for the task though. I would upvote such an answer. Thing is I'd hate to recommend a company I've never used.
