This session includes four 20 minutes technical presentations focusing on design and implementations of cloud-enabled applications/services that utilize distributed computing technologies like Eucalyptus, EC2, Azure, Hadoop/MapReduce, etc. The four projects identified include:
  • Mike Gangl, PO.DAAC - on the DMAS federate architecture using ZooKeeper
  • George Chang, LMMP - on using Hadoop
  • Phil Yang, GMU and Karl Benedict, UNM - Utilize Cloud Computing to Enable Dust Storm Forecasting
