Cloud computing is changing the cyberinfrastructure landscape and is rapidly providing unprecedented capabilities across Government and industry. The combination of flexibility and extensibility of cloud computing environments are opening up new methods by which Information Technology (IT) can be leveraged to accelerate science and engineering. Across Goddard, a number of groups have been exploring the use of cloud computing for not only science and engineering but for big data analytics and web services as well. This presentation will provide an overall context for how cloud computing will be a critical component of the future Goddard IT enterprise architecture. In support of this future state of IT at Goddard, this presentation will highlight the capabilities and service offerings for two cloud offerings: (1) the Goddard Private Cloud (GPC), and (2) the Advanced Data Analytics Platform (ADAPT). In addition, we will show example use cases currently running in these clouds and provide information for how to get access and support.
Edward Masuoka is the Chief of the Terrestrial Information Systems Laboratory at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. His recent work includes managing data systems the produce, archive and distribute products from the Earth Observing System (EOS) Terra, Aqua and Aura, Suomi NPP and Joint Polar Satellite System missions. He is also the project manager for the Goddard Private Cloud a joint Code 600 and 700 on premises cloud.
