Well, subject of this posting (the container and the truck itself) cannot be seen on historical imagery (might appear one day), but I have felt right to put this up here on 'Historical Imagery' as article let us imagine, how great output of man and machine that provides such gorgeous service of satellite/aerial imagery datasets when we use this feature.
*** DigitalGlobe (DG) has been collecting imagery of Earth from space since our QuickBird satellite launched in 2001. As DG continued to launch new satellites to join their world-class constellation, the collection capacity and resolution have increased. In the past 17 years, they’ve collected more than 7 billion square kilometers of imagery. These are big, heavy images from a processing standpoint and add up to a lot of storage; an image from a satellite like WorldView-3 can be 30 GB. Their archive now consumes 100 petabytes of storage and increases by 10 PB per year.
AWS Snowmobile is an exabyte-scale data transfer service used to move extremely large amounts of data to Amazon Web Services (AWS). You can transfer up to 100PB per Snowmobile, a 45-foot long ruggedized shipping container, pulled by a semi-trailer truck.
AWS Snowmobile is so big that DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-3 satellite can see it on the company’s corporate campus from space.
