Session Takeaways (post-meeting)
1) New open-source systems building on Amazon Web Services (leveraging AWS Lambda) allow huge earth-science datasets to be stored in the cloud. Example: NASA Cumulus software to support EOSDIS data archive.
2) Considering how organizations control access to cloud components is crucial for building a productive data-management workflow with AWS, while protecting from errors and data loss.
3) Cloud environments can create lots of complexity in governance, data security, and financial management, but also create an easier environment for managing and using petabyte-scale data archives across the Earth Sciences.
