Submission + - Scientists Built The Hubble Telescope for the Ocean in the Cloud->

stacey7165 writes: VMware shared the application architecture story of how they worked with the Ocean Observatory Initiative to build a "Hubble Telescope" of the ocean. Comprised of a massive network of global, regional, and coastal sensors that send information to a common framework called the Common Operating Infrastructure (COI). The COI resides in a hybrid cloud powered by VMware and Amazon. To cope with a total of 49 classes and over 700 instruments deployed off of 6 coastlines, and a variety of consumption use cases, the Ocean Observatory Initiative built out the system using a variety of sub-systems loosely coupled through a messaging system powered by RabbitMQ called an "Exchange". Organized into a system where message clients pubsub from "Exchange Points" and "Exchange Spaces", the system is easier to maintain, extend, and scale. According to the OOI's documentation on release 1, the system uses ION uses AMQP 0.9.1 and RabbitMQ-Server v. 2.3.1 on CentOS 5.5.
