Navteca has been helping NASA and other organizations with the deployment of Jupyterhub connected to HPC clusters in the cloud. We call this platform Open Science Studio. Through the collaboration with NASA scientists working on the Earth Information System pilot project and other projects that use the Open Science Studio, we have been collecting requirements and feedback from the scientists related to making the platform more useful for their purposes. Some of this feedback has been translated into a new Jupyterlab extension which provides one or more new capabilities. One of these new capabilities is what we will present to the Pangeo group. The new Jupyterlab extension allows Jupyter Notebook users to interact with datasets stored into different cloud object storage systems, including AWS S3, Azure Blob and GCP Storage. The extension allows users to do things like download and upload files to these cloud storage systems, access publicly available datasets from AWS, Azure and Google, add specific buckets to a list of favorites or even make cross-account buckets available in the user interface.
