We did this at the now-defunct Arctic Region Supercomputing Center from
about 2011-2015. We were only using it to distribute limited GRIB outputs
from our Alaska WRF model runs to Alaska Region National Weather Service
So, it wasn't a heavy load (NWS network limitations prevented that,
anyway), but it was all quite straightforward.
