NASA, NOAA and USGS are in the process of moving data onto the cloud. While they have discussed what types of services are available and future plans of what data can be found, it is not completely clear what datasets users can currently access. This session will go over what datasets are currently up in the cloud and what data to expect in the near future. This way as users are transitioning to the cloud for their compute, they can also know what data are available to them on the cloud as well. There will also be presentations from AWS. Speakers:
Katie Baynes - NASA/EOSDIS
Jon O'Neil - NOAA
Jeff de La Beaujardiere - NCAR
Kristi Kliene - USGS/EROS
Joe Flasher - AWS

Presentations: See attached.

Takeaways
  • Petabyte scale data is being moved into the cloud. This is concentrated in AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft depending on the agency and dataset
  • Some concern around partnerships with companies (AWS most discussed) in terms of long term relationships, moving data etc. and how those things might impact access or data use
  • Need to make clear the authoritative source of the data, who is stewarding it, and any modifications done when copying to cloud. Users should exercise due diligence in selecting and using data.
