Golden Star Technology Helps NASA Track Weather to Save Lives

GST helps NASA to deploy a mission-critical data delivery system featuring the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 product family

Challenges
• Populations are at the mercy of unpredictable weather patterns
• Technology resources for weather forecasting are fragmented and not always coordinated
• Potential billion-dollar losses can result from epic storms

Solutions
• Polar-orbiting NASA satellites that monitor global weather
• A worldwide network of ground stations to receive and share satellite data
• Accurate predictions aid in evacuations and other critical responses
• Intel® Xeon® processors provide the server and storage capabilities required for this demanding workload
• Intel® processor performance and reliability in remote operational sites around the world enable the overall success of the project

Technology can’t control the weather, but it can predict and pinpoint dangerous conditions accurately enough to help emergency response teams prepare for the worst. As NASA prepared to deploy the ground stations for a next-generation satellite network to monitor global weather conditions, it relied on the expertise of Golden Star Technology (GST) to deploy a network of ground-based servers based on Intel® architecture.
