ConnectX Unveils Mission to Launch First Space-Based Supercomputing Platform

The company aims to create a system that can help solve big data storage issues associated with terrestrial supercomputing.

ConnectX, a collaboration of experts in the aeronautics, mathematics, physics, engineering and business fields, aims to replace current cloud computing with a Space-based supercomputing platform. With this new structure, the company will send, receive, store and process massive amounts of Big Data at a much lower costs, it stated in a press release.

The next-generation Big Data computing and communication platform will use powerful, miniature satellites that leverage the space environment. The system would also replace binary code with a new symbol structure for optimized transmission, storage, processing and delivery of data.

“Distributed cloud computing was not designed for the exponential growth in Big Data. It needs a new platform.”  said Lance Parker, founder and CEO, ConnectX. “To achieve this, we have to rethink network, storage and computing systems to tap into this enormous opportunity.”
