03 Dec Cloud ERP keeps pace with NASA technology
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is using cloud technology to explore Mars and they recently announced they would continue to use cloud computing and storage platforms in order to communicate with and process data gathered in the Mars Curiosity mission. They also said they would eventually move their operations completely to cloud computing services.
Cloud Tech has the full story on the announcement which was made at the 2012 re:Invent Conference.
In 2008, NASA showed an extreme faith in cloud technology when administrators ordered IT staff not to purchase any more physical servers. This is just another indication that cloud hosting is a viable technology. And now when you adopt a hosted ERP solution you can say you’re using the same technology as NASA.
