Petabite GmbH Logo

Solutions and services for petabyte-scale data tasks.



We are at home in large data volumes and provide support and consultancy for the implementation and evolution of large-scale data management and processing solutions. From cloud native technologies to hybrid solutions we design and build stable, secure and cost-effective solutions that keep large data volumes both accessible and safe.

With a combined experience of 30 years in the design and implementation of operational data management and production systems, we design specific solutions for all scales and many domains for deployment in-house, in the cloud or in-between.

Implementation and operations

We implement services using state-of-the-art, scalable and cloud affine concepts and ensure efficient deployment in the cloud by exploiting elasticity concepts across various cloud providers. We ensure secure and highly available operations through advanced architectures, solid implementation and rigid testing.

For reliable operations cost prediction we can employ system modelling and simulation techniques to achieve precise estimation of prices in different environments and reliable cost optimization solutions.


Petabite are Nils Junike and Bernard Pruin. We are experienced software architects, developers and project managers with many years of experience in mission specific and multi-mission earth observation systems. We also have a strong background in the Copernicus Sentinels missions, in particularly Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-3.

Since mid-2020 we are working in this small, eager and easily excitable setup of the Petabite GmbH. With this fresh endeavour we want to leave an imprint in the earth observation domain with highly useful and easily usable functions for dataset discovery and data handling.
