Features of iSMART
iSMART® provides full, enterprise-grade GIS functionality that is used by experts every day.
Key features include:
- Web-based administration: User-friendly web-based setup of spatial data from Oracle and geospatial web services, including definition of maps, styling, metadata and end-user permissions.
- Standards-based security: Including access control to data and functions by user role, and LDAP / Active Directory support.
- Auditing of all data changes, including configuration.
- Network Data Modelling tools: For Oracle Network Data Model, or custom network data schemas.
Oracle 12c, 11g (R2), or 10g (R2). May use Oracle Spatial option (full spatial functionality), or Locator (some limitations on advanced functionality).
Fully supported Enterprise Java application servers: Apache Tomcat 6.0/7.0 (with Java 1.6/1.7), Oracle WebLogic ’11g’ 10.3 (with Java 1.6) and ’12c’ 126.96.36.199 (with Java 1.8)
Supported operating systems
Linux Red Hat (64 bit) and derivatives, Windows Server 2008/2012 (64 bit), Solaris 10 (SPARC), Windows 7
The web application server on which iSMART is installed must have an Intel or compatible x86-64 64-bit CPU architecture, or Solaris operating system on a SPARC CPU.
Hardware requirements depend on expected user numbers, data sizes, usage patterns etc. iSMART is typically deployed with separate application and database servers. Multiple application servers may be used for scalability and fail-over. Separate front-end web servers may also be deployed.
A typical application server would have a 4 core (2.5 GHz, hyper-threading) 64-bit CPU (or equivalent 8 vCPU), 7-12 GB RAM, 200 GB Disk.
A typical database server would also have RAID disk array, >100GB capacity.
