    116 '''[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Array_DBMS Array Databases]''' allow storing and querying massive multi-dimensional [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Array arrays], such as '''sensor, image, simulation, and statistics data''' appearing in [wiki:ApplicationDomains domains] like '''earth, space, and life science'''. During a review in Fall 2014, independent experts unanimously have attested that, based on "proven evidence", rasdaman will "significantly transform the way scientists access and use data in a way that hitherto was not possible".

    119 rasdaman ("__ras__ter __da__ta __man__ager") is the leading array analytics engine [wiki:WhyRasdaman distinguished] by its flexibility, performance, and scalability. Rasdaman embeds itself smoothly into relational databases, but can also run standalone on the file system. In fact, rasdaman has pioneered Array Databases being the first fully implemented, operationally used system with an array query language and optimized processing engine with unprecedented scalability. Known rasdaman databases exceed 230 TB; with [http://www.earthserver.eu EarthServer], intercontinental fusion of Petabyte datacubes is being established. In 2014, rasdaman was selected the [http://www.copernicus-masters.com/index.php?kat=winners.html&anzeige=winner_t-systems2014.html winner of Big Data Challenge] in the international [http://www.copernicus-masters.com/ Copernicus Masters] competition.

    122120Starting with version 9.0, rasdaman is official OGC WCS Core Reference Implementation, and candidate reference implementation for all WCS extensions. Further, rasdaman is [http://geossregistries.info/geosspub/resource_details_ns.jsp?compId=urn:geoss:csr:resource:urn:uuid:e8d4eb7b-4681-4f71-9e34-0f78cf10ce92 listed in the GEOSS Component and Service Registry].

    126123'''Next-Generation Geo Raster Server'''. Rasdaman is brought to you by the guys writing the geo raster standards, including [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wcs OGC WCS] and [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wcps WCPS], the OGC raster query language. The [PetascopeUserGuide Petascope] component of rasdaman provides service interfaces based on the [http://www.opengeospatial.org OGC]  [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wms WMS], [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wcs WCS], [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wcps WCPS], [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wcps WCS-T], and [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wps/ WPS]. For several of these, rasdaman will be reference implementation. Since April 2011, rasdaman is available on the [http://live.osgeo.org/en/index.html OSGeo Live DVD] (a short [wiki:OSGeoLiveGetStarted get started guide]). Drivers are available for  integration with [http://www.gdal.org/ GDAL], [http://mapserver.org/ MapServer], [https://www.r-project.org/ R], and several more.
