The Forest project seeks to create a framework that allows arbitrary remote-sensing devices to stream data to the cloud for processing and users to upload their own processing steps to combine and generate new data products and view the results.
Use of FutureSystems
FG, Nimbus and Phantom will be used to provide and develop a system that can automatically scale as more data streams are added, and to handle user requests to search or process large amounts of archived data in a reasonable time.
Scale of Use
At initial scale, we expect to use relatively small number of VMs for our experiments.
