    118 rasdaman ("__ras__ter __da__ta __man__ager")  allows 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'''.  This worldwide leading array analytics engine [wiki:WhyRasdaman distinguished] by its flexibility, performance, and scalability. Rasdaman can process arrays residing in file system directories as well as in databases. In fact, rasdaman has pioneered [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Array_DBMS 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 150 TB; with [http://www.earthserver.eu EarthServer], intercontinental fusion of Petabyte datacubes is being established. The forthcoming ISO SQL/MDA (Multi-Dimensional Arrays) standard has been crafetd by the rasdaman team.

     120'''Wanna try?''' If you want to try out rasdaman right away: http://standards.rasdaman.com is a demonstration site showcasing rasdaman-enabled the Big Earth Data standards OGC WCS and WCPS in a variety of 1-D to 5-D geo use cases.

    121 Starting 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].
     123'''Next-Generation Geo Raster Server'''.
     124From simple geo imagery services up to complex analytics, rasdaman provides the whole spectrum of functionality on spatio-temporal raster data - both regular and irregular grids.
     125And it does so with an unprecedented performance and scalability, as recent scientific benchmarks show.
     126To leverage this enabling technology, users do not necessarily have to learn new interfaces: rasdaman [wiki:Clients integrates] smoothly with R, !OpenLayers, Leaflet, NASA !WorldWind, GDAL, MapServer, ESRI ArcGIS, and many more.

    124 '''Next-Generation Geo Raster Server'''. Rasdaman is brought to you by the guys writing the Big Earth Data 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 is already / will likely 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. http://standards.rasdaman.com is a demonstration site showcasing rasdaman-enabled OGC WCS and WCPS in a variety of 1-D to 4-D geo use cases.

     130No surprise, rasdaman supports [http://www.opengeospatial.org OGC] [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wms WMS], [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wcs WCS] core and all extensions including [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wcps WCS-T], [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wcps WCPS], and [http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wps/ WPS].

    127 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'''. 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, underlining its maturity and scalability. This is along a [http://kahlua.eecs.jacobs-university.de/~lsis/#awards chain of innovation awards] rasdaman continues to receive. See also the [http://www.ohloh.net/p/rasdaman listing on OpenHub] for the business value of rasdaman.
