ONDA DIAS is the Serco DIAS Big Data platform which, with the aim of facilitating, fostering and expanding the exploitation of Earth Observation satellite data and geospatial information, enables users to build and operate applications in the Cloud by providing Data, Services and Support. The ONDA paradigm is to “bring people on data”, by offering custom solutions to cover the needs of all prospective users, who range from the general public, having minimal or no knowledge of Remote Sensing, to professionals and SMEs, to public authorities, agencies and large enterprises.

ONDA DIAS platform offers free and open access to a wealth of datasets from different sources, from the Copernicus Sentinels family, to other Earth Observation satellite missions, and the Copernicus Services projects. The ONDA DIAS platform has indeed exceeded the nominal DIAS requirements, by hosting one of the largest archives ever built for geospatial data and information: the service offers free and direct access to a cloud-based repository of more than 62.4 million of products at the time of writing, which occupy a volume of more than 39 petabytes of locally-stored data.
