Furlow consulting


NASA imaging satellites deliver GB’s of images to Earth every day. Mapbox uses AWS to process that data in real-time and build the most complete, seamless satellite map of the world. Learn how Mapbox uses Amazon S3 and Amazon SQS to stream data from NASA into clusters of EC2 instances running a clever algorithm that stiches images together in parallel. This session includes an in-depth discussion of high-volume storage with Amazon S3, cost-effecient data processing with Amazon EC2 Spot Instances, reliable job orchestration with Amazon SQS, and demand resilience with Auto Scaling.
