HDF Group Joins the OCC

HDF Group

We’re pleased to announce that The HDF Group is now a member of the Open Commons Consortium!

The HDF Group will participate in the NOAA Data Alliance Working Group on the WG committee that will:

  • Refine and implement the full activities of the working group, establish and reinforce alliance partnerships, and build a sustainable framework for the alliance;
  • Work with OCC staff and OCC member staff to implement hardware, software, and networking requirements; and
  • Meet with the user community and determine the datasets to be hosted in the NOAA data commons and tools to be used in the computational ecosystem surrounding the NOAA data commons.

The HDF Group will also participate in the Open Science Data Cloud working group and receive resource allocations on the OSDC Griffin resource. The HDF Group’s John Readey is working with the OCC and others to investigate ways to use Griffin effectively. Readey says,

“Griffin is a great test bed for cloud based systems. With access to object storage (using the AWS/S3 api) and the ability to programmatically create VM’s, we will explore new methods for the analysis of scientific datasets. By working with the consortium’s many science participants, combined with Griffin’s storage architecture and compute cluster, we have a unique opportunity to explore ways to improve both computational and data services in the cloud.”
