All you storage geeks and science fiction fans rejoice! If Cloud Constellation gets its way, you'll soon be able to directly hybridize your dreary earthbound data center storage with actually above-the-clouds storage. Yep, protect your sensitive data by replicating it to true satellite storage. Only James Bond with a spare Shuttle would be able to hack those things. Just how far fetched is this idea? ... Actually not that far fetched. As audacious as the plan is for an individual startup, the actual tech involved is not that hard to fathom - laser uplinks/crosslinks and satellites full of solid state....
Satellite-based data centers with room for petabytes of data may start orbiting Earth as early as 2019. But when it comes to keeping secrets safe from the long arm of the law, the black void may not be far enough.
A group of Los Angeles-based tech entrepreneurs is targeting government agencies as prime candidates for SpaceBelt, a satellite-based datacenter network infrastructure that proposes to circumvent terrestrial network logjams, evade hackers and cut data security and management costs.
