Cubed is an alternative framework for distributed processing of large arrays. Designed to respect memory constraints at all times, Cubed generalises the model of Rechunker to execute any numpy-like array operation. By using Zarr as persistent storage between steps, and Lithops as an abstraction layer, Cubed can run in a serverless fashion on a range of Cloud platforms. We will show how Cubed has been integrated with Xarray and demonstrate its performance on a tricky array workload.
