The purpose of this report is to explain how – by leveraging on the capabilities of the amazon web services – it is possible to manage and process a set of data that is too large and complex for traditional data processing techniques and technologies.
The report discusses the implementation of a set of services – from the retrieval of external data to its transformation, through the storage on non relational databases and finally the parallel computation on an external cluster – meant for the management of discographic information in order to easily join different data in an agile manner and subsequently perform additional processing based on the joined output.

Gliding is an efficient and versatile way to traverse large distances whilst expending as little energy as possible. Work done in the field of biomimetic robotics has demonstrated further benefits to gliding in increasing trajectory control and reducing landing impact loads. A small-scale micro-glider was built to fit a specific design envelope with the objective of maximizing its glide range. A linear dynamics model was used to design and predict the gliding performance of the robot. Once manufactured, it achieved a glide distance of 1.8m and the performance was accurately captured by the dynamics model.
