Maximum Protection and Availability

CKAN is developed in accordance with best practices for building secure web applications and regularly subject to penetration testing as part of government deployments. Our cloud cluster meets stringent security standards and all solutions are monitored and SSL encrypted. Should a failure occur, restore times are within 1 hour through daily snapshots with backup retention of 30 days.

Fully Compliant

CKAN Cloud is fully compliant with all standards such as INSPIRE and the Local Government Association inventory schema. For UK customers, we are also available via the Government’s Digital Marketplace.

Open-source. No restrictive lock-in

CKAN Cloud is built on open source code. This means that - unlike proprietary solutions – you are free to move your data to your own hosting at any time, not confined to any lock-ins. Should you choose to migrate we will provide an export of all your data.
