Sentinel Data Access Annual Report 2017

18 May 2018

We are pleased to publish the third Sentinel Data Access Annual Report. This 2017 report takes up from where the 2016 report left off, and analyses the uptake of Copernicus Sentinel data and the performance of the Sentinel Data Access System during the period 01 December 2016 to 30 November 2017.

By the end of the reporting period, the Sentinel Data Access System was supporting 109,690 registered users, a daily publication rate of 10.04TB/day, and an average daily download volume of 93.5TB. A total of 50,964,670 products had been downloaded by users since the start of data access operations, with a total data volume of 41.35 PB.

As well as providing detailed statistics behind these figures, the report explains the challenges and the solutions found by the the Data Access Operations team in publishing and disseminating such huge volumes of data.
