Sea-faring data center essentially a floating server rack
New system billed as the "Amazon Web Services of the open ocean."
As reported by Daniel Terdiman for CNET News, a Silicon Valley company called Liquid Robotics has launched its Wave Glider SV3, described as "essentially a self-powered sea-faring data center system that gives users the ability to investigate the world's water ways for months on end."
"Essentially a fully autonomous floating server rack, [the Wave Glider SV3 is] a system its maker [fancies] as the Amazon Web Services of the open ocean," writes Terdiman. The platform's hybrid propulsion system runs on either wave or solar power. System options include a vectored thruster that lets the robot "continue its missions in high seas and dead calms alike."
