Edge computing in action: Space

NASA and its contractors are accelerating decisions in space with edge computing. Data is processed close to where it is generated—not sent back to Earth. The barrier to edge computing in space, until now, has been the very limited physical space, power, and cooling resources aboard space stations and satellites. However, data scientists accustomed to nearly infinite cloud resources are now rethinking the way they develop code. With Red Hat® platforms, NASA and its contractors can mix and match edge hardware, based on space, power, cooling, and connectivity constraints on space stations and satellites.
