The Challenge
At an international institution such as ESA, the main purpose of the RSS service is to provide its customers with reliable and performant services. Most of their end-users are researchers from universities and research centers, service providers, public institutions and medium-sized enterprises. In order to manage the variable workload, and the diversity of processing required they decided to trust CloudSigma to satisfy different user requirements.
The Customer


About The Customer
ESA RSS (Research and Service Support) is a service provided by the European Space Agency (ESA). ESA is Europe’s gateway to space. Its mission is to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world. ESA RSS service provides resources to support Earth Observation data exploitation. They support data access and data processing by bringing user algorithms close to the data. And by providing various platforms and environments. RSS also supports the development of new applications and services to generate value-added information derived from Earth Observation data. In CloudSigma, ESA RSS found a stable platform that enables them to supply consumers of Earth Observation data with great performance and availability. Additionally, the RSS team has built a strong working relationship with CloudSigma staff who are on hand to assist them immediately. The ESA RSS team continues to grow its services hosted with CloudSigma over time.
The Solution
Currently, RSS is using computing power at CloudSigma and satellite data stored on the clustered storage system. The purpose of this is to provide virtual environments where Earth Observation users can develop their algorithms or processes. By so doing the aim is to help researchers and service providers to speed-up their research saving time and costs. The scale-out magnetic storage provides ESA’s RSS team flexible and cost-effective storage with the necessary performance and scalability to run its analyses and store the satellite data and computational results.
