  • We present our experiences using cloud computing to support data-intensive analytics on satellite imagery for commercial applications. Drawing from our background in highperformance computing, we draw parallels between the early days of clustered computing systems and the current state of cloud computing and its potential to disrupt the HPC market. Using our own virtual file system layer on top of cloud remote object storage, we demonstrate aggregate read bandwidth of 230 gigabytes per second… CONTINUE READING
