ELDORADO EAP data sheet



(Enterprise Large Data Object Repository for Analytics in Deployed Operations, Enterprise Analytical Platform)

ELDORADO provides decision advantage through a purpose-built platform for BIG DATA that rapidly closes the gap between collection, PED and analytics.  ELDORADO represents an advanced capability for analytics against geospatial data collected in forward theatres of operation.  Specifically, ELDORADO pushes advanced analytical exploitation of geospatial objects forward, and then provides “reach forward” capability for CONUS based analysts.  ELDORADO is designed to interoperate, and can be extended by “plugging in” additional third-party capabilities. 

Data management and access functions provide rapid ingest and dissemination of many geospatial data types, including WAMI, FMV, LIDAR, SAR. OGC services provide application access to the data, and a real-time “reach-in” capability for analysts, allows for video-like playback of wide-area motion imagery.

The analytics capability includes a cognitive search engine that allows analysts to visually explore the personalized vector space through an intuitive interface.  Relevant data sources are connected with geospatial images without requiring that data sources be conditioned.  Structured, unstructured and machine generated data sources are fused, allowing analysts to explore the data, identify critical relationships, and gain actionable insights.

ELDORADO is typically provisioned with 5PB usable large object storage per container, and includes the associated compute and networking infrastructure to support the analytic functionality.  

ELDORADO is a commercially available service.  The entire system is provided for about $0.20/GB/month, and can be configured for either deployed or traditional datacenter environments.  This price point is approximately 80% less than comparable commercial clouds, about 90% less than traditional system integration efforts, and can be up and running in about 90-days.  And ELDORADO is secure, having achieved ATO at the Secret Collateral level.  (ICD-503 reciprocity provisions may be leveraged for accreditation within 30 days of acceptance.) 

The YottaStor team provides three (3) web-scale services to support geospatial data objects. These are Ingest, Search, and Content Dissemination deployed in a Global Namespace environment that can scale to exabytes of capacity.

Service Overview:

Ingest  - This service enables authorized users to ingest data into the LDOS Global Namespace. This Ingest Service is optimized for specific target data types and is regularly updated to incorporate new and modified industry standards. All data ingested into the LDOS Global Namespace can be accessed through the LDOS Search and Disseminate Services by any authorized user.

Search  - This service allows authorized users to execute powerful searches and queries against the data stored in the LDOS Global Namespace.

Content Dissemination  - This service allows authorized users to extract data from the LDOS Global Namespace using industry standards such as OGC Rest APIs and NIFTS data formats to bring the object back to their operational systems for further processing.

Global Namespace Scalability - The  ability to scale the Global Namespace storage capacity without any disruption to the LDOS Services. As additional storage capacity is added to the Global Namespace, this new capacity is immediately available to the LDOS Services.


Provided as a “fee for service” 

The YottaDrive Service is a “fee for service” solution.  It includes the LDOS Services, facility, and 24x7x365 operations and maintenance by qualified personnel.  In addition, the service also includes the overall Service Management and Change Management processes required to maintain the system accreditation.


Analytic agnostic

The YottaDrive Service was developed as an analytically agnostic platform.  The architecture design is to allow individual customers to deploy the appropriate analytical stack to meet their mission requirements.  This analytical stack will access the global namespace using industry standard RestAPI services.  The design is to store the large objects only once and allow application functions to access and consume only the required objects to achieve the required outcome.
