The Royal Navy has tested a new quantum navigation system, which uses atoms to determine a vessel’s location with more precision than GPS. The tech, developed by Imperial College physicists, could replace satellite navigation that is currently employed.
Seafowl can be hosted as a serverless app on platforms like Cloud Run with a “scale to zero” architecture. The database objects are stored in S3 buckets and Seafowl’s catalog can be backed by SQLite, which speeds up HTTP requests, avoiding dependency on a persistent Postgres process. The addition of gcsfuse to the Seafowl container helps in mounting SQLite files from buckets.
