Does your work require access to large quantities of Sentinel data?

If so, you’re in luck! 😄

Get direct access via the Object Storage

On top of powerful software and hardware that can help you process the data quickly, the Standard Virtual Machines plan also grants users Object Storage access (see all features).

Object Storage is an S3-like object interface that simplifies the storage infrastructure, improves scalability, and above all gives direct access to all stored data!

💡 WEkEO Pro Tip: to learn more about how to retrieve data from S3 buckets, you can check this page.

📌 Note: check this article to get more info about WEkEO's plans.
