Capstone Data Analysis Services: Microservices Early Implementation (RESTful microservices and Document Database)

(Slides)  (Recorded Talk)

Although climate and weather information are vital to research and decision-making in a wide variety of societally important contexts, it is difficult for scientists, resource managers, and concerned citizens to access and share the expert knowledge required for analyzing and drawing conclusions from weather and climate data. This project is focused on the design and development of a cloud-based application that facilitates an end-to-end public access to analyze atmospheric data. The project involved the research and development of: a) RESTful-based micro services and web-based user interfaces; b) generic workflow specification design, management, and execution; c) database technologies; d) scalable cloud-based computing and storage solutions; d) data analysis and integrity; and e) system security.

This presentation will focus on the concepts of RESTful microservices for the distributed and parallel execution of different tasks, and the use of document databases for metadata persistence and task reproduction, as well as the technologies used to implement these concepts.
