EOMF-34. How Trackline Geophysics is Exploring the Cloud with Feet on the Ground

With much uncertainty about how and when NESDIS and NCEI will be migrating to the Cloud, it is important for individual projects to start thinking critically on what components of your processes you want to migrate, and what changes you can make to take advantage of what cloud does best. While it is fun to dream up big and bright new solutions, we will have a stark reality of having to sustain our on premise systems while we have a staggered migration into the cloud. The Trackline Geophysics team has developed a hybrid solution that will allow for components of the pipeline to migrate into the cloud, while maintaining our current capabilities through existing infrastructure.
