Goddard Showcase – Earth Information System Infrastructure. Leveraging Infrastructure as code to do science in the cloud.

From deploying “The Littlest JupyterHub” to automating the deployment of multiple Kubernetes powered Daskhub infrastructure; we would like to share a story about how using AWS Cloud (AKA an API) can not only make solutions deployment faster, repeatable and more secure but also more fun. The Earth Information System was a 6-month Science Pilot therefore we needed to make sure that most of the time was consumed with doing science not configuring servers. Infrastructure as cloud and an API (AWS Cloud) allowed us to provision JupyterHubs, Dasks, HPC clusters, NLP AI, and some other technologies in 2 days… the rest is science
