Testbed intro

From Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)

Intro[edit | edit source]

A progress test, discussion, report and collaboration about what is needed to support a cloud computing testbed for producing lessons learned and best practice for ESIP members to assess, test, and adopt cloud platforms for their research, development, and education:

  • discuss the matrix of requirements for cloud computing by ESIP members,
  • identify the possibility of cloud resources (Amazon, Microsoft, Nebula, Private Cloud),
  • identify potential applications to be running on potential cloud resources,
  • a execution plan for the testbed with a target of presenting in the summer meeting.

Mike's comments[edit | edit source]

  • How to run cloud computing services.
  • How to migrate Earth science applications onto cloud environment and how to best leverage the cloud.
  • Help us mature the open source foundation.
  • Develop a community agreed matrix for testing cloud.
