NASA’s exciting Mars mission is now taking place, with its rover vehicle, otherwise known as Curiosity, roaming the mysterious planet in search of scientific discovery. Whether you’re a fan of space exploration or not, there’s one thing about the mission that has gotten everyone talking.
No, not about the possibility of finding aliens on the red planet, but that NASA is employing a cloud storage system in order to store and stream the videos and images which it receives from its space buggy.
It may seem like cloud storage as an industry has just been catapulted into the skies, being given more limelight by this leading space agency, but the popularly growing system is not a new one to NASA at all. In fact, they’ve been using one for quite a few years.
Hopefully this will dispel the negative myths of cloud storage by shedding light onto just how effective and pioneering cloud storage has become in storing and sharing incredible feats of data on a worldwide scale. It was always deemed likely that cloud storage would continue to grow, but now it seems that it has conquered new worlds…literally.
