What is Atlas?
Atlas helps you launch your CenturyLink Cloud satellite application quickly and painlessly. It builds on top of Cyclops by adding a business logic layer to create a basic satellite application.
Where did the name come from?
Atlas is named after the NASA Atlas rocket. The Atlas rocket was a medium launch vehicle (MLV) that was used through out the "space race" to carry satellites, equipment, and astronauts to space. Given that the Atlas library helps "launch" satellite applications faster, it seemed appropriate.
