Collaboration with the Open Commons Consortium
The Open Commons Consortium (OCC) is a 501(c)3 not for profit that manages and operates cloud computing and data commons infrastructure to support scientific, medical, health care and environmental research. OCC members span the globe and include over 30 universities, companies, government agencies and national laboratories."
Open Science Data Cloud (OSDC)
OSDC is a large-scale science cloud deployed in 2009 that makes large datasets and cloud-computing infrastructures available to data scientists around the world.
Matsu is a collaboration between NASA and the Open Commons Consortium to develop open source technology for cloud-based processing of satellite imagery to support the earth sciences. The OSDC is used to process Earth Observing 1 (EO-1) satellite imagery from the Advanced Land Imager and the Hyperion instruments and to make this data available to interested users. We are currently working on developing services for detecting fires and floods and getting relevant information to first responders.
Biomedical Commons Cloud (BCC)
BCC is a new Open Commons Consortium (OCC) project allowing university, medical research centers, and companies to jointly leverage private, secure compliant clouds operated by the OCC within the context of a larger, commercial open ecosystem to facilitate discoveries in biology, medicine, and healthcare.
