#4D2 - Cloud Technologies and Case Studies - Empowering domain experts with DARE, a new cloud-based platform and working environment

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

DARE focuses on empowering domain experts to invent and improve their methods and models by providing a new cloud-based platform and a working environment. We have initially focused in the seismology community, supplying advance interfaces to support the Rapid Ground Motion Assessment (RA) application. It requires rapid data analyses, handling multiple data formats, multiple data sources, and availability of computing and storage resources on demand.
The new interfaces that we are building on DARE provide a fluent path from prototyping to production. Applications are not locked to platforms but can be moved to suitable new platforms without human intervention and with the encoded method’s semantics unchanged. For doing so, we exploit different technologies, such as scientific workflows (CWL), stream-based data-flow systems (dispel4py), containers (Docker), infrastructure orchestrations (Kubernetes), notebooks (Jupyter), and Cloud platforms. DARE platform acts as an intermediary between users’ applications and the underlaying computing resources, submitting applications and collecting (and storing) their provenance and results.
