How To Use Cloud Computing To Do Astronomy

This is a talk I gave jointly with my colleague Ewa Deelman (ISI, USC) at Caltech on May 9. I have had a number of requests to post the slides, so I will do so here:  Cloud IPAC May 9 gbb ewa final copy. We attempted to give a practical guide to using cloud computing in astronomy, especially for workflow processing at scale. We discussed the following topics:

  • How to get started.
  • What types of applications are best run on the cloud.
  • How to go about deciding whether to run your app on the cloud.
  • Examples of running apps on the cloud
  • Tools for provisioning resources, running workflows on the cloud and monitoring.
  • References for further reading.
