We will describe our project to upload a 2.4 PB dataset encapsulated into ~80K fused files from the 5 instruments on the Terra satellite into NASA AWS S3.
We will share the bottlenecks points and lessons learned during this process and expect to share experiences with similar projects in order to understand the best practices and collect guidelines for future projects that are adopting cloud solutions for their data needs.

We'll discuss data volumes, data integrity strategies for migration, S3 bucket organization, metadata curation, transfer rates, transfer pipelines, etc. We will also discuss and share data access patterns, costs, and architectures and how we can construct guidelines for access to these datasets efficiently.

We encourage the discussion among different projects that faced similar processes or are looking to migrate their datasets into the cloud.

  • Project required/used a combination of NSF, NASA and AWS resources. Some interesting discussion around AWS or other cloud services as a stand in or follow on to limited term NSF assets
  • Some interesting discussion of tailoring to appropriate end users- wide range of potential users and thus requirements for the dataset. This includes access guidelines, user capabilities etc.
  • Project aimed to make a paradigm shift from understanding/observing physical processes to a full climate observing objective
