Cloud-Based Visualization at Pennsylvania State University

Penn State

Researchers at Pennsylvania State University have used funds made available through Unidata's Community Equipment Awards program to prototype a system for using cloud-based resources to provide access to 3D-visualization software. Their project, titled “A Prototype Cloud-Based Visualization System for Unidata Applications,” focused on running Unidata's Integrated Data Viewer (IDV) on a remote (“cloud”) system and making it available on multiple remote clients.

Graduate Student Opportunity: Modeling Research in the Cloud Workshop

With funding from the National Science Foundation, the Unidata program is collaborating with researchers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research and the university community to organize a workshop on “Modeling Research in the Cloud.” The workshop will include speakers and participants from academia, government, and the private sector (including commercial Cloud vendors), and will be held 31 May - 2 June 2017 at the UCAR campus in Boulder, Colorado. Funding is available to sponsor attendance at the workshop by five graduate students.

CloudStream — An Application Streaming Docker Framework

In November of 2015, Unidata released CloudIDV, a cloud-optimized version of the IDV. Since then, our community has expressed interest in the underlying application-streaming technology. In the words of one developer, "We all have legacy software that we'd like to support on new devices." Motivated by this observation, we have released CloudStream. CloudStream allows a developer or scientist to easily package software and/or a custom linux environment in such a way that it becomes ready for use in the cloud. Thanks to Docker, building software for use with CloudStream is no more difficult than configuring and building software in any standard Linux environment.

Unidata Joins the Open Commons Consortium

OCC

The Unidata Program has become an offical member of the Open Commons Consortium (OCC).

The OCC, formerly known as the Open Cloud Consortium, is a not-for-profit organization that manages and operates cloud computing and data commons infrastructure to support scientific, medical, health care and environmental research. OCC members span the globe and include over 30 universities, companies, government agencies, and national laboratories.

As a member of OCC, Unidata's initial focus will be participation in the OCC NOAA Data Alliance Working Group, which aims to support the NOAA data commons and the geoscience community interested in the open redistribution of NOAA datasets. (Unidata is also involved with cloud-based access to NOAA data through its collaboration with Amazon Web Services.)

CloudIDV: the Integrated Data Viewer in your web browser

cloudIDV
A fully-interactive IDV in a web browser.

As part of the Unidata Program Center's continuing investigations into the use of Unidata technologies in cloud computing environments, UPC developers have created a version of the Integrated Data Viewer (IDV) that runs in a Docker container and displays the IDV interface in a web browser.

The CloudIDV container can be run on any computer that has the Docker containerization software installed — currently linux, MacOSX, and Windows versions of Docker are available. If you are already running Docker on your own system, you can easily experiment with the CloudIDV container. If you're new to Docker, read on for details on how to get started.
