Our society has benefited from Space exploration in many ways. Many of the inventions we use nowadays have their origin in or have been improved by Space research. Computer Science is not an exception.
This talk will introduce the application of Cloud Computing done by me in the context of different Mars missions: Mars MetNet (Spain-Russia-Finland), MSL Curiosity (NASA) and ExoMars2016 (ESA). The achieved know-how allowed the optimization of other areas on Planet Earth, such as weather forecast and agricultural wireless sensor networks processing.
Never been into Cloud Computing before? Do you think that an extra computing power is crucial for your research? Do you have some neat parallel codes that your institution doesn’t allow you to execute because the cluster is full? Maybe this tutorial is for you!
- Infrastructure as a Service clouds (user level) with OpenNebula and Amazon EC2.
- Virtual Clusters on cloud with StarCluster.
