Climavision Targets Weather Forecasting Through HPC Cloud Bursts
If Climavision isn’t on your radar just yet, that’s understandable: the company launched from stealth just six months ago, emerging in June with a formidable $100 million in funding. Its promise: to roll out a combination of numerical weather prediction (NWP), AI, traditional weather observations, satellite data and a new radar network to challenge the major weather prediction players. Normally, this kind of Herculean task might carry with it a large on-prem HPC presence—something seen at many of the organizations that perform large-scale weather forecasting. But for Climavision—fittingly—it’s all in the cloud.
