Sysadmin: FreeAndOpenSourceSoftwareInEnvironmentalForecasting

Abstract

Several years ago an interdisciplinary team of scientists and IT staff set out to create an integrated suite of environmental prediction models (weather, sea state, river flow, inundation). "EcoConnect" - a 24 by 7 operational system - was built using a large number of Free and Open Source packages.

This talk will detail some of the architecture choices made and demonstrate how FOSS packages are used in the software development, deployment, product generation, scheduling and monitoring of our system. And there will be animations.
