NASA Collaborates with Japan Over Joint Open Source Cloud Computing

NASA Uses Nebula Cloud Platform to Advance Global Cooperation in Research and Education

NASA and Japan's National Institute of Informatics (NII) will be collaborating on interoperability between NASA's Nebula Cloud Computing Platform and Japan's NII Cloud infrastructure. Nebula, NASA’s huge open source project for the purpose of on-demand cloud computing integrates cloud computing and data center containers for NASA’s new data powerhouse and provides access to high performance computing and storage for the space agency’s researchers. Japan's NII Cloud provides cloud platform services to Japan's academic and research community. NASA Nebula and NII's Cloud are both built entirely using open source technologies and open-data application programming interfaces.

NASA's Chief Technology Officer, Chris C Kemp demonstrated the scope of the interoperability efforts during NII's annual Open House event in Tokyo by incorporating Nebula and NII Cloud infrastructures to serve publicly-available selections of Mars Orbiter data sets to a web application. NASA said that this initiative helps demonstrate how cloud standards can facilitate interoperability and data portability and help create a worldwide common pool of academic information infrastructure.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
