Local Data Manager Slices, Dices, Makes Julienne Fries

A prominent Canadian researcher has discovered that the command line argument -ayfs (pronounced “aye-fuzz”), when added to Unidata's Local Data Manager (ldm) software, creates a whole new era in IT infrastructure capability and a radical paradigm shift for mobile platform deployment.

Canadian scientist Steve Emmerson, currently employed by Unidata, added the option in 1993 to the C code base, but didn't get around to trying it until April 1st, 2014. Once he tried it he found that the option creates unprecedented scalability and on-demand self-service provisioning of computer capabilities. “It seemed like a good idea at the time,” said Dr. Emmerson about the switch that can be enabled at runtime, “but I had no idea that it would transform Geoscience through innovative data services and enable revolutionary ways of wringing knowledge from an ever-expanding pool of Earth System science data.”
