Environmental Science on the Cloud with Windows Azure (CSD362CAL)

Find out how environmental scientists are using Windows Azure to allow them to easily collect, analyse and share their data.

Duration: 1 Hour

Contact: Academy



Scientific instruments, environmental sensors, and large-scale simulations are creating more scientific data than ever before. By using advanced, large-scale information processing facilities, scientists are now able to analyze massive volumes of data in ways that never would have been possible just a few years ago. While a few researchers have access to these large computer systems, most are limited by the processing capacity they can access conveniently and quickly. Cloud computing solutions utilizing Windows Azure allow environmental science researchers to access the compute and storage resources that they need, when they need them—without the up-front financial investment required—and helps reduce the time between progress and breakthroughs. Windows Azure brings on-demand computing and data access to environmental scientists and researchers everywhere. Find out more at Windows Azure for Research -

Areas covered in the session:

  • How to move beyond the desktop with cloud computing
  • Windows Azure for MODIS data processing and visualization with FetchClimate
  • Scaling out Matlab computations in the Cloud
  • Realizing an environmental data, modeling and decision support pipeline in Windows Azure
  • How Windows Azure can help your environmental science research, and what to do next
