How has NASA benefited from Cloud computing? Amazon Web Services shares their NASA case study

With Cloud Computing, NASA JPL has accelerates discovery by 840%, and is able to explore Mars more quickly. 

High-performance computing in the cloud has enhanced the close collaboration between mission control and IT. As expert users of infrastructure—rather than simply infrastructure experts—IT has become tightly integrated into the mission teams. 

Amazon Web Services instances, utilizing the Intel Xeon processor E5 family, allowed NASA JPL to streamline their science. Now scientists and engineers can share their research easily, scale up when they need to, and keep their focus on exploring the Earth, the solar system, and the universe beyond.
