XXL: If the monthly limits of our offering are not sufficient, you can order your own routing server. Ask us for further details.
It is no issue if your request is off the mainstream or you need more resources. If requested, we install several open source routing engines on your hardware or run them on dedicated servers we rent for you. It is not limited to OSRM only, we offer GraphHopper, Valhalla and BRouter as well.
No use case is like any other use case. If requested, we adapt routing engines to your needs. This includes the development of new or the modification of existing routing profiles for different vehicle types or returning additional attributes of roads available in OpenStreetMap. We have even fulfilled niche use cases such as railway routing.
