FYI, Wenming is part of a group we have formed called, the EarthCube Cloud
Commons (ECC), whose objective is to encourage adoption of cloud computing
for geoscience research. We are creating a few demo VM’s for the VM Depot.
We hope to have some demos for the EarthCube All-Hands Meeting.
Please feel free to join this activity—by sending me email at
baru at sdsc.edu.
