Sensorica is composed of academics, engineers, farmers and computer programmers and the core products are sensors for scientific measurement and for industrial applications.
One answer to solving the storage issue is software-defined storage (SDS) which separates the physical storage hardware (data plane) from the data storage management logic or ‘intelligence’ (control plane). Needing no proprietary hardware components, SDS is the perfect cost-effective solution for enterprises as IT can use off-the-shelf, low-cost commodity hardware which is robust and flexible.
More than 600 local, state and federal governments have signed up for the Waze Connected Citizens Program, and more than 80 have expressed interest in a new Waze open source processor—New York City; Los Angeles; Anchorage, Alaska; and Denver among them—to contribute code or deploy the finished solution. The only cost they’ll incur will be that of paying the cloud provider, Amazon, for storage and data transfer: less than $200 a month.
