OpenNEX: Enabling Code-to-Data Migration between High-Performance Computing, Cloud and Beyond

Principal Investigator (PI): Petr Votava, NASA's Ames Research Center

It is becoming increasingly apparent that moving code to data is a more efficient way to conduct research in the Earth sciences. However, in many instances scientists still prefer to move data because science codes tend to be hard to port to different systems. In this proposal we address the code-to-data migration by integrating the NASA Earth Exchange with Docker, a popular open-source Linux tool. This will enhance deployment and discovery of NASA tools and data services and greatly increase software reuse.
