hey all - someone in the Jupyter community meeting just made a point that I think relates to Pangeo, and I’m curious what this community has experienced:
One of the participants mentioned a hosted / cloud-based analytics platform for molecular modeling. It required scalable computing and large datasets, and they wanted to provide Jupyter environments to let users interact with these.
They got a lot of generally positive response, and wrote up an NSF proposal to build a Pangeo-like model (Jupyter/BinderHub etc) for shared infrastructure within the project.
However, they didn’t get the proposal funded, and a big part of the response was “you should use pre-existing NSF infrastructure for compute etc, not use JupyterHub or cloud computing”. In their case, this means they now integrate with CyVerse, which is a big NSF-funded infra project (though doesn’t use many open source infrastructure tools and doesn’t use enterprise cloud at all, I believe)
I am curious if Pangeo has ever gotten feedback along these lines - and if so, how you responded to it?
