Welcome to the Cloud Computing Cluster

Description and Objectives

As geospatial computing continues to demand more volume, variety, and velocity, the core characteristics of big data, the Cloud Computing Cluster helps ESIP members tackle these challenges through cloud-based architectures, technologies, and software. By bringing together users, developers, and researchers from industry, government, and academia, this Cluster provides a virtual platform for ESIP members and broader communities to share relevant knowledge and experience. The Cluster also aims to help foster collaborations among different organizations and individuals to work together to better apply cloud technologies to today’s data challenges.
