OpenStack is supporting three NASA missions:
- Mars 2020 (landing a car-sized lab on Mars to gather data to prepare for human colonization of Mars!),
- Europa Clipper (Jupiter’s moon is the best candidate for finding extraterrestrial life!), and
- SMAP (monitoring the Earth’s soil moisture levels will improve weather forecasts, monitor droughts, and predict floods!)
Come listen to Jonathan Chiang, sr director of infrastructure engineering at NASA JPL, talk about their Hybrid Cloud framework and how they enable scientists to choose between AWS, Azure, and OpenStack when deploying their workloads and performing science.
