Hey, did you hear how NASA used Amazon’s cloud computing for its latest Mars mission? NASA’s management of the Curiosity Rover is demonstrating the considerable technical expertise of the scientists involved in the design and deployment of history’s greatest continuation of unmanned research on another planet. The JPL Curiosity Rover Team’s use of the latest in Amazon Web Services (AWS) Infrastructure and Platform support services (IASS) are demonstrating the team’s considerable understanding of the financial benefits as well.
With the ability to manage and deploy new assets, servers and content management platforms, from anywhere on the globe in minutes; the Labs are able to provide both the public and the scientific communities with real time multimedia via data fusion unlike anything we have experienced before. Graphics from the labs, pictures from Mars, content analysis of sampling the Mars atmosphere, soils, and weather; are just the beginning of this demonstration of Amazon Web Services’ capabilities. Hats off to all involved!
