The Met Office, United Kingdom's national weather service, is depended upon the world over for reliable weather predictions, especially when people are being threatened by severe weather conditions. And there's little room for error. As Phil Evans, Director of Government Services at Met Office, says, "It's incredibly important that the customers trust what they've been given -- trust the accuracy, trust the reliability...." Entire industries around the globe also depend on these forecasts to keep business moving. It's a demanding task, and Met Office collects 10 million weather observations every day from around the world. So while people depend on Met Office for reliable weather forecasts, Met Office depends on the mainframe, processing and outputting forecast reports quickly and without error.
