6 Ongoing Projects AWIPS II Cloud Servers IDD Product Generation and Additional Experimentation IDV Application-Streaming Cloud Servers
7 AWIPS II Cloud Servers Unidata is testing small footprint EDEX servers (no NEXRAD Level 2 or 3 or high-resolution CONDUIT models) on both Microsoft Azure and Amazon EC2 cloud server environments.
8 AWIPS II Cloud Servers EC2 Instance is created cooperatively with Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) as part of their equipment grant award.
9 AWIPS II Cloud Servers The Azure instance is serving data to AWIPS II beta testers.
10 IDD Product Generation and Additional Experimentation Unidata operates mid-sized instances in Azure and Amazon EC2 clouds. These instances are being used to generate image products for the IDD FNEXRAD and UNIWISC data streams.
11 IDD Product Generation and Additional Experimentation EC2 Instance is the primary source of FNEXRAD and UNIWISC data streams to IDD participants. We will be transitioning to Azure cloud instances to reduce recurring costs, due to an resource award from Microsofts Azure-for-Research program.

15 IDV via Application Streaming Goal: Create and provide IDV instances which live in the cloud but may be streamed to various devices. Drawback: The interface is adapted to the target device but is not optimized for it. Benefit: Brings the IDV to new classes of devices without needing to modify the IDV.
16 Application Streaming? Application Streaming is similar to remote desktop technology, but is meant to stream a single application. The server instance is optimized for the dimensions of the remote client device. Consider Netflix, Amazon Streaming Video.
17 Status Using the Azure Web API, we are able to dynamically allocate and provision VMs used to host individual IDV instances. We are then able to instantiate IDV instances then streamed (via existing remote-desktop protocols) to mobile devices.
18 Next Step Current efforts are focused on creating a web dashboard which will allow users to register and manage IDV-streaming requests. As of right now, instances are instantiated via the command line.
19 Performance How well does it perform? Performance is tied to the client used. Dedicated clients such as "Parallels Remote Access" or "Air Login": Very good, typically adapted to touch interfaces. Generic VNC clients: acceptable, but suffer from inconsistent interfaces between clients.
20 VNC Demo
21 Parallels Access Demo
22 Future Work As a first attempt, the results have been very promising. Moving forward: generic VNC access or dedicated client access? The latter would be preferable given infinite resources, but we have not been given infinite resources (yet).
23 Summary Unidata is proceeding into the cloud along multiple fronts. These projects are no longer speculative. What we learn from these projects will aid future projects. Recording an ipad screencast is difficult.
