EUMETSAT will open pilot big data services to all users in Autumn 2019
02 July 2019
The EUMETSAT Council has agreed to open four pilot 'big data' services to all users of the organisation's meteorological and climate data in Autumn 2019.
A common cloud infrastructure and data 'lake' will feed pilot online data access services, multi-casting services via a broadband terrestrial network, advanced web map services and online product customisation services.
Building on the validation of pathfinder big data services by national meteorological services, the open pilot phase will bring EUMETSAT big data services to full operational status by mid-2021.
