Descartes Labs is building a living atlas, combining historical and current satellite data. Its technology runs on the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor, which accelerates the compression of huge data volumes.
Descartes Labs helps companies to get business insight from huge volumes of satellite and geographic data, using a combination of Software as a Service and custom development. Handling petabytes of data, compression is hugely important for packaging the data in usefully sized files and for driving down storage costs. By upgrading to the latest generation Intel® processor, provided in the Google Cloud Platform*, Descartes Labs was able to accelerate its compression.
