500 Petabytes of Data to Understand the Universe better
Session date: Jul 07, 2020 11:00am (Pacific Time)
The Vera C. Rubin Observatory, currently under construction in Chile, will conduct a vast astronomical survey of our dynamic Universe starting in 2022. They plan to collect 500 petabytes of image data by observing the skies continuously for 10 years and produce nearly instant alerts for objects that change in position or brightness every night. In addition to astronomical data, their dataset will include DevOps, IoT, and real-time monitoring data.
In this webinar, Dr. Angelo Fausti will:
- Demonstrate how a time series database has the versatility to address their needs
- How they created a solution to enhance visibility across their organization and improve actionable insights
- How they pull software development and sensor data from their telescope, camera and observatory IoT devices.

Software Engineer, Large Synoptic Survey Telescope - Vera C. Rubin Observatory
Angelo Fausti got his Ph.D. in Astronomy in 2009 studying the properties of dark matter halos in cosmological simulations such as the Millennium simulation. As a member of the LSST data management team, his main projects include creating a service for monitoring the LSST Science Pipeline metrics and the Engineering Facility Database that will record data from numerous devices and sensors to monitor the telescope and the observatory.
