LOS ANGELES, Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dell/EMC Corporation estimates that by 2020, 1.7 megabytes of new information will be created every second for every person on the planet. Enterprises, CSPs and governments are already struggling to move and store this onslaught of data quickly and safely. In order to support these efforts, Cloud Constellation Corporation today announced its ongoing progress in establishing its SpaceBelt™ Information Ultra-Highway, a space-based network of satellites for instant, secure data storage and transport across the globe.
The hybrid cloud evolved as a way to protect and manage critical data on private, on-premises infrastructure and enable organizations to host customer-facing applications in the cloud. Unfortunately, hacks on the application layer and IoT and DDoS attacks continue to plague today's corporate and government networks.
Bypassing jurisdictional restrictions: The need for data privacy and security has led to worldwide jurisdictional restrictions and strict laws regarding how data is moved between countries. Because SpaceBelt bypasses the internet altogether, data cannot be intercepted or decrypted and may flow freely between any two points.
Overcoming cybersecurity concerns: Organizations of all sizes are subject to leaky internet and leased lines. By placing data on satellites that are accessible from anywhere via ultra-secure dedicated terminals, SpaceBelt sidesteps the inherent hazards of the internet.
Shrinking the carbon footprint: Data centers account for almost two percent of total U.S. electricity consumption. Expert Ian Bitterlin calls this "unsustainable." Using a satellite network for cloud storage of sensitive and mission-critical data will dramatically reduce carbon emissions and energy bills.
Scott Sobhani, Cloud Constellation CEO and co-founder, said: "As the internet becomes increasingly less secure, SpaceBelt will provide a safe haven for data, a place without interruption or exposure to any surreptitious elements or unintended network jurisdictions. Cloud service providers will be able to offer better services at a third of the cost of doing business today because they will not have to add CapEx and OpEx for expansion. Major corporations that deal with mission-critical data, whether in healthcare or pharmaceutical, military or financial sectors, will achieve significant market differentiation while reducing their carbon footprint globally. It's a new way to think about data centers that will benefit customers and the Earth as well."
