Satellite Imagery Analysis Simplified with Serverless Infrastructure
Effectual worked with a Federal Government customer to provide a mission critical solution that simplified its Land Satellite sensor processing software of the Earth’s land surface.
The images provide uninterrupted data to help land managers and policymakers make informed decisions about our natural resources and the environment.
A Federal Government customer looked to us to migrate its on-premises infrastructure to a Serverless infrastructure in AWS to ensure cost optimization, availability, and application performance while logging satellite images.
Our team implemented AWS Lambda, AWS Batch, Kubernetes, and Amazon EKS. This ensured the client’s ability to collect satellite images that would be used to help scientists track land change due to climate, urbanization, drought, wildfire, and biomass changes.
We implemented AWS Lambda to run code without servers. By implementing Serverless infrastructure the client was able to reduce cost by 80%.
Our team implemented Kubernetes to provide automated container orchestration and higher availability across multiple regions. This allowed users – both domestic and abroad – to access satellite photos more efficiently via the web for personal and private use.
We set up serverless storage to compact the client’s satellite imagery retrieval process from 2 weeks to 2 hours.
