Session 5B Cloud Computing for Environmental Data Processing and Display: Promise vs Practice—Part II

Tuesday, 8 January 2019: 1:30 PM-2:30 PM
North 131C (Phoenix Convention Center - West and North Buildings)
Host: 35th Conference on Environmental Information Processing Technologies
Eugene Burger, NOAA/ERL/PMEL, NOAA Pmel, Seattle, WA; Tiffany C. Vance, NOAA, NOS/IOOS, Silver Spring, MD and Kevin Tyle, Univ. at Albany/SUNY, Albany, NY

This session will delve into cloud hosting solutions applied to benefit the environmental sciences and specifically applications for processing and displaying environmental information. Cloud computing have moved beyond the model of simple VM hosting toward more sophisticated specialized hosting options such as collocating large to big data in the cloud with analysis programs and developing new models and modeling platforms in the cloud. While cloud hosting does present many solutions, migrating legacy application to a cloud platform is challenging. Presentations on the cloud migration challenges or hosting limitations and how these constraints were resolved for weather, ocean, or climate relevant applications will be welcomed. Presentations might also include novel uses of the cloud and real-world use cases, including costs and platform selection.
