High Availability & Automated Data Capture Without Onsite IT Staff: University of Cincinnati

Meteorologists need comprehensive weather data from all over the world to predict dangerous weather events. Climatologists need the same data to create a historical record for studying long-term climate trends. Data capture and distribution is expensive and labor-intensive. Conventional weather stations are usually composed of costly specialized instruments that store and communicate data in proprietary formats. Technicians must venture into extreme heat and cold in every corner of the world to manually download weather data from the collection systems. The proprietary data formats make the information difficult to share.
