Image providers and governments continue to grow their catalogues and archives of Earth imagery in public clouds. This has opened an opportunity to leverage container technology and cloud resources to reshape processing pipelines and add unprecedented efficiencies and scale. With CATALYST Microservices it is possible to cost effectively process terabytes of Earth imagery in minutes.
What are containers?
Containers are standalone executable software packages that include everything needed to run a process, such as: code, runtime, security, and all other dependencies. Because of this, containers are light-weight and can run on any server (and OS) without the need for installation or configuration. This makes it possible to deploy and scale containers on any of our cloud partner servers, in seconds.
CATALYST Microservices is our library of containerized workflows and algorithms that are implemented on major cloud providers and orchestrated to automate and simplify the user experience, data acquisition, eliminate costly waste, and automatically scale to minimize project duration.
