Spacecraft Operations isn’t all that different from IT Operations, with much of the focus being on the ability to quickly respond to time-sensitive events and anomalies. Having real-time access to the telemetry data is essential when responding to anomalies, visualizing several time-series signals, and discovering long-term trends in a multi-billion document dataset. Today, Elasticsearch is used to provide these capabilities for our missions giving operators a rich and flexible API into a scalable cluster of nodes. This talk will focus on how we scaled Elasticsearch for telemetry queries, the data ingest pipeline based on Apache Spark and how we orchestrate several clusters using Docker, Apache Mesos and Marathon. Together these tools give users a self-service platform for data exploration and discovery.
Dan is a Data Scientist in the Office of Chief Technology and Innovation at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory where he is using Elasticsearch to provide realtime analytics for the interplanetary missions at JPL. Dan has been at JPL for over 6 years and worked on various projects including the Curiosity Rover at Mars and the SMAP Spacecraft orbiting Earth. Dan has a passion for space, data, automation and writing tools that developers enjoy using.
