LEOcloud and Exodus Orbitals Collaborate To Deliver Seamless Cloud Framework For Satellite-Hosted Applications
The Combination of Exodus Orbitals And LEOcloud Services Will Provide Developers A Satellite Host Environment for Application Development, Test and Operation
Ashburn, VA & Toronto, Canada, June 15th 2021 – LEOcloud and Exodus Orbitals announced today they have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to develop a go to market and services integration strategy that will enable end users to develop, integrate and test their satellite-hosted applications in a seamless terrestrial and satellite cloud framework.
LEOcloud’s Space Edge mission and strategy is to bring hybrid cloud edge computing services as close as possible to satellite-sourced data; and data collected from, and services delivered to remote regions of the world. End users can then operate their business or mission critical services or applications in a seamless hybrid cloud environment, and realize the lowest latency possible for conversion from raw to monetized or actionable data. LEOcloud’s point and click approach for the end user will enable the reservation of dynamic and scalable virtual Space Edge computing resources, cloud services, and satellite data sources.
Exodus Orbitals mission is to make space exploration accessible to everyone through their “satellite-as-a-service” virtualization platform, to be deployed on a variety of satellites in Low Earth Orbit. Using flight-proven technology validated through our work on European Space Agency OPS-SAT mission, Exodus Orbitals will open up a new development platform for the millions of users worldwide. Following the pattern of web and smartphone app markets, software applications in space will become a new area of exponential growth.
To deliver the benefits and capabilities of Space Edge, LEOcloud plans to deploy Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform, that’s purpose-built for the age of hybrid innovation and delivers a more consistent experience across all environments, including Low Earth Orbit (LEO). Red Hat OpenShift is optimized for developer productivity and innovation. With Red Hat OpenShift as the part of the LEOcloud framework, users will be able to run LEOcloud services across the entirety of the hybrid cloud, including at the edge, unlocking more speed, agility and flexibility.
The integration of Exodus Orbitals and LEOcloud services will allow developers to develop, integrate and test their applications in the intended satellite target environment, just as a they would do on Earth. The benefit to the developer is the shortest time to market with the highest confidence of predicted behavior and performance for satellite-hosted applications.
“The result of LEOcloud and Exodus Orbitals collaboration will be a framework where developers can quickly and confidently bring to market their satellite-hosted applications,” said Dennis R. Gatens, CEO and president of LEOcloud. “As smart phones created a high growth market opportunity for mobile applications, satellite-hosted cloud infrastructure and services will do the same.”
“By partnering with LEOcloud we can accelerate development of satellite-hosted application platform, bringing the power and flexibility of software-defined solutions to the next frontier of global economy” in the words of Dennis Silin, Executive Director and founder of Exodus Orbitals.
