Cloud Telecons 12

From Federation of Earth Science Information Partners

Time: 2-3pm EST, Jan.27, 2014; Attendees: Stefan/Goddard Earth Science Data Group, Erin/ESIP, Rick/SAIC, Phil/GMU

Winter meeting summary: The sessions are all well attended and with the Thursday ones almost full house. It is good share experiences like we did on Friday sessions. Especially on how to manage security, etc. Comments from the audience stated that they wish to continue the cloud computing sessions.

Thoughts for following on monthly and summer sessions: Would be good to have hands-on session on cloud computing instance management, esp. AWS. Project examples will be good for people to learn from fresh practices. Monthly calls could include some general introduction about cloud computing from industry, etc.

Thomas to check presentations already up on the website and try to get as many as possible.
