Los Altos, Calif. and Reston, Va. – June 30, 2016 – piXlogic, a leading supplier of image and video automated search solutions, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, today announced that they are among the first group of technology vendors to be listed in Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace for the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC).
AWS Marketplace for the U.S. IC is designed exclusively for the 17 intelligence agencies to evaluate, purchase, and deploy in minutes--via 1-Click®--an increasing array of common software infrastructure, developer tools, and business software products.
piXlogic’s piXserve software is an enterprise-class solution that automatically indexes images and videos, making their content readily searchable by users. piXserve recognizes faces, objects, scenes, and text in a range of languages and character sets. piXserve works with more than 100 image and video formats, including satellite and aerial material, automatically generating searchable keywords/tags for objects and people recognized by the software and of interest to users.
A REST-based Web-Services API makes it easy to integrate piXserve’s functionality in customer workflows. The software operates at scale both for indexing and for searching. It distributes workloads across multiple piXserve instances on the network, and takes advantage of as many cores and GPU resources allocated to it by the systems administrator.
“Images and videos have always been key elements of intelligence and defense operations, and piXlogic’s solutions provide an unparalleled level of image analysis and understanding. The software has been available on the commercial AWS Marketplace for some time, and we are very pleased that it is now available on AWS Marketplace for the U.S. IC,” said Joseph Santucci, piXlogic’s CEO.
“By removing the complexity and delays associated with the procurement of dedicated hardware, time sensitive projects can now be accommodated in a matter of minutes just by spinning up instances of piXserve on demand and at scale. It’s a big plus for our customers,” said Matt Rattigan, Manager of AWS Marketplace Solutions at Carahsoft.
Three editions of the piXserve software are available to government customers, and are available for installation on customer servers and in the cloud. The pay-as-you-go licensing model provides AWS customers a readily deployable tool that can enable users to efficiently and effectively find what they need and navigate large volumes of images and videos. Training, both formal and informal, is also available from piXlogic.
AWS Marketplace for the U.S. IC provides the same purchasing convenience, open and transparent license terms and conditions, and variety of pricing models, including hourly usage and annual subscription, as the commercial AWS Marketplace. It also supports Bring-Your-Own-License (BYOL) so that agencies can more easily migrate existing software licenses and applications. AWS Marketplace for the U.S. IC is part of the Commercial Cloud Services (C2S) program, under the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Intelligence Community Information Technology Enterprise (IC ITE).
