Session Description:
When data is shared in the cloud, anyone can analyze it without having to download it or store it themselves, which lowers the cost of new product development, reduces the time to scientific discovery, and can accelerate innovation. However, staging large-scale datasets for analysis in the cloud requires consideration of how data should be prepared and organized to allow fast, efficient, and programmatic access from distributed computing systems. This workshop provides a forum for members of the community to share lessons learned as they explore ways to use the cloud to expand data access. It seeks to encourage dialog between users interested in leveraging data in the AWS Cloud for research and application development for Earth Sciences.

Workshop Format: 
Workshop includes 1.5 hours of presentations (Cloud Data Optimization: Emerging Best Practices I) followed by 1.5 hours of discussion on emerging best practices and identifying needs to move this space forward.

Session II - Round table discussion: emerging best practices in cloud data optimization
