In this section, we delve into the commercial Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) services provided by CloudFerro, the sole dedicated Earth Observation (EO)-centric Cloud Provider in the market, via the WEkEO Elasticity Platform.

We plan to extend our services to more locations in the coming year, with each region offering its distinct set of services and prices. All public cloud instances have equal access to EODATA.
As a cloud provider specializing in Earth Observation (EO), CloudFerro presents significant advantages for EO-related applications. Standing out from generic clouds, CloudFerro ensures competitive pricing by integrating EO Data access directly into each Virtual Machine (VM). This distinctive approach allows your applications to benefit from immediate, high-speed access to an extensive range of EO data, eliminating the need for time-consuming data transfers. This degree of integration results in faster processing times, more efficient resource usage, and ultimately, a smoother, more responsive user experience.
