We have received some funds for hardware which we will run IDL/ENVI
MATLAB, TIMESAT (http://web.nateko.lu.se/timesat/) and Agisoft PhotoScan
We plan to get:
DELL C4130 server with two Xeon E5-2650 processors
2 x NVIDIA K80 cards for GPU enable processing
Some SSD-disk (Samsung pro?)
Raid-6 with XXX Tbyte disk for storage
Will use LINUX/CENTOS.
Using this hardware we plan to run time-series analysis of MODIS,
SENTINEl-2, LANDSAT data, processing of drone data and standard (but
demanding) image processing tasks with big data sets.
We expect there will be a lot of reading/writing to disk why we hope the
SSD speed up some of these things.
I would appreciate some advice form your extensive experience on
suitable hardware/software configurations and alternatives. What to use
and what NOT to use? Whats important to think of?
