"Now, all that these companies will need to do is schedule ground station time, downlink and uplink satellite data and immediately start data-processing", said Jassy, "Our pay-per-use ground stations now mean that customers save up to 80 percent of their ground station costs". AWS offers over 125 fully featured services for compute, storage, databases, networking, analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), mobile, security, hybrid, virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR), media, and application development, deployment, and management from 57 Availability Zones (AZs) within 19 geographic regions around the world, spanning the US, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and the UK.
Customers increasingly run a diverse set of workloads in the cloud and are looking for solutions that lower costs without compromising performance, according to AWS. The 12 Ground Station antennas located around the world are located in proximity to AWS Global Infrastructure, which makes access to data fast and in real-time.
They can then quickly combine the data with other AWS services to process and transport the data to keep up with the rapidly-evolving conditions.
US e-commerce leader Amazon's subsidiary Amazon Web Services (AWS) on Tuesday introduced four services and capabilities to make it easier to ingest data from edge devices and build rich Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
AWS Ground Station, an on-demand satellite communications and data ingestion service for private space companies and government space agencies, will change how those entities explore earth from space, Jassy said. The service, Jassy hopes, will allow customers to download data from satellites into AWS Global Infrastructure Regions more easily and inexpensively. "That also means if you want to take that data and use it, you need infrastructure to store, process and do analytics, which is all hard and expensive".

It saw them score 33 points on 50 percent shooting from the floor along with six assists on 10 made field goals in the period. The Rockets appeared to be rebounding when they won five in a row last week, but have since dropped two straight.
In September, Reuters reported that AWS was in talks with Chile to house and mine massive amounts of data generated by the country's telescopes. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ: AMZN), announced that Ellie Mae, Inc.
Lockheed Martin has developed the Verge Antennae network to support the capture and delivery of satellite data to AWS.
"What they tell us is that it's not so simple dealing with satellites if you want to upload and download data". "The combination of Lockheed Martin Verge and AWS Cloud will allow multiple satellites to downlink simultaneously, which will increase satellite constellation throughput and reduce latency for our customers".
Lockheed Martin said that with almost 16,000 new satellites expected to be launched in the next decade, the solution could exponentially decrease costs attached to the data processed from them.
