In 2012, with JPL struggling to deal with the onslaught of data generated by missions in the solar system and on Earth, Soderstrom implemented a cloud strategy designed to cost-effectively expand the lab’s IT resources while reducing the risks associated with capital investments. His actions turned JPL into a model smart user of cloud technology. The organization now handles upwards of 100 terabytes of data and dozens of applications in the cloud, freeing employees to focus on the mission.
