Notes Doc

ESIP initiated a new NOAA Cloud Pathfinders Project concept with NOAA to help increase awareness of NOAA data holdings in the cloud, and build skill sharing around cloud-native and cloud-optimized systems. NCPP is a pilot project with the idea to build ongoing opportunities whereby climate scientists conduct their research in the cloud while learning deep dive skills in a particular cloud environment. In addition to receiving cloud credits from AWS to kickstart this Pathfinders’ Concept, AWS supported each scientist with the development of solution architecture in the cloud and best practices for the execution of the project.

This session shares detailed project experiences by the scientists and showcases their findings. In addition, we invite others to submit to be a speaker in this session to highlight the barriers, challenges, successes, and lessons learned from their journeys in the cloud.
