SatMagazine: Light At The End Of The Tunnel
NSR’s Cloud computing via satellite report cited in SatMagazine’s article on the future of Satcom.The satellite-to-cloud market offers great potential and the tech giants are looking to realize significant gains from this technology. Cloud computing via satellite is projected to drive 52 exabytes of traffic by 2029, generating a potential $16 billion in revenue from 2019 to 2029 — with most of the revenue flow going to service providers and satellite operators, as indicated by a market report from Northern Sky Research.
The overall purpose of satellite-to-cloud is to give users direct control over satellite communications, downlinks and to process satellite data. In this way, data from the satellite is made available through cloud services, and data centers can host websites, run applications and easily scale their operations without the necessity of owning or leasing ground station infrastructure.
