Open Telekom CloudAround the world in 100 minutes. This is how long the Sentinel-2A satellite takes to orbit the Earth. In just five days, its cameras can survey virtually the entire planet, thus generating petabytes of data over the course of a year – data that is freely available to anyone, thanks to the Copernicus program run by the European Commission and the European Space Agency (ESA). What’s more, the task of analyzing this mass of data is soon to become a much more efficient and simple process – with the aid of the Open Telekom Cloud.
A team from Slovenian company Sinergise Ltd. has used Deutsche Telekom’s public cloud offering to develop the “Sentinel Hub” web service, thereby winning the annual “Copernicus Masters” Earth observation competition not just in the “T-Systems Open Telekom Cloud Challenge” category, but also as the overall winner of all seven categories.
