Amgen selects AWS for vast majority of cloud infrastructure

  • Amazon Web Services announces its own custom-designed ARM server processor

However, it is expensive for AWS's customers as they have to build or lease ground antennas to communicate with the satellites, says AWS.

Among the four services is AWS IoT SiteWise which is a new managed service that collects, structures, and searches IoT data from industrial facility devices and uses it to analyse equipment and process performance data.

Amazon has an eye on the sky.

Amazon at the AWS reinvent conference which held in Las Vegas on Monday has announced its new custom-made, ARM server processor that it calls by the name as AWS Graviton Processor. This is the company's first public move into space-related hardware.

"AWS gives us an unmatched set of cloud services and a highly reliable infrastructure to work with as we continue to build solutions that provide borrowers and lenders with the best digital loan experiences". With AWS Ground Station, AWS handles every aspect of the satellite data retrieval and processing operation for the company, greatly reducing the cost and complexity associated with it.

At present, AWS Ground Station has space firms and satellite imaging companies like Lockheed Martin, BlackSky and Open Cosmos as part of its clientele. "For space startups like Spire Global, AWS and Lockheed Martin are unlocking the potential of almost continuous and uninterrupted access to satellite data along with the ability to analyze and leverage that data using the broad and deep cloud services available in AWS", said Robert W. Sproles, Ph.D. and Program Manager, Ground Stations, for Spire Global, Inc. Add to this, costs involved in setting up servers, storage and networking in close proximity to these antennas. "This is not efficient", he said at re:Invent 2018. Jassy showed a map of the planned locations for the ground stations with South Africa among those highlighted, alluding to the fact that a ground station will likely be located close to the group's planned data centre in Cape Town.

"It's not so simple dealing with satellites if you actually want to be able to upload and download data", said Andy Jassy, Amazon Web Services' chief executive. This is precisely the type of data you can get from satellites. "It brings down the cost to download, process, and take actions", Walter said.

Another downside of a parabolic antenna is that it can only connect to one satellite at a time, and only when it passes overhead. There are 2,000 satellites in orbit and they don't "talk" to parabolic antennae.

AWS also announced a strategic collaboration with Lockheed Martin to integrate the new AWS Ground Station service with the global security and aerospace giant's new "Verge" antenna network.

Lockheed Martin predicts that there will be 16,000 satellites in the sky over the next decade. "The combination of Lockheed Martin Verge and AWS Cloud will allow multiple satellites to downlink simultaneously, which will increase satellite constellation throughput and reduce latency for our customers".
