1sockchuck writes “NASA has built its Nebula cloud computing platform inside a data center container so it can add capacity quickly, bringing extra containers online in 120 days. Nebula will provide on-demand compute power for NASA researchers managing large data sets and image repositories. “Nebula has been designed to automatically increase the computing power and storage available to science- and data-oriented web applications as demand rises” explains NASA’s Chris Kemp. NASA has created the project using open source components and will release Nebula back to the open source community. “Hopefully we can provide a good example of a successful large-scale open source project in the government and pave the way for similar projects in other agencies,” the Nebula team writes on its blog.”
