Some of the main deliverables include improved performance and reliability of big data processes, including applications relying on video, telemetry and voice.

Pat Symonds, chief technical officer, Williams Martini Racing, said: “The less obvious benefits include the ability to gain higher speed access to our crucial information sources, independently of where we are racing. This includes the ability to interrogate remotely our CAD system back at base, build new assemblies and then export the required information for use on the racetrack in a matter of minutes.”
