HDF5 is one of the most widely used file formats for Earth Science data. One of the strategic goals of The HDF Group is to enable seamless transition to cloud computing for all applications depending on the HDF5 API. This session will provide several use cases of HDF Group's own and third-party solutions on how to access and analyze HDF5 data in cloud object stores. Also included will be an update on the HDF5 library's road map with emphasis on the new feature in the latest version 1.12.0 which enables access to different file formats and backend storage systems through HDF5 API.

  • Breaking large data volumes into small objects provides the benefits of 1) small data replacements on update, 2) greater opportunity for parallelism on a single data access, 3) mitigation of memory requirements on a server involved in reads and writes.
