Conclusions and Future Outlook book
In response to the increasing volume and complexity of scientiﬁc data, many projects and activities have taken place over the last decade. In this book we have addressed these issues in depth, by describing existing technologies, and how they were used successfully in real example applications. Speciﬁcally, we addressed the state of the art of storage technologies, techniques for achieving eﬃcient I/O, and standards for managing storage systems, and large-scale data movement. We also covered methods of eﬃcient in-memory data movement, workﬂow technology to achieve real-time monitoring, and metadata and provenance management techniques to collect the history of runs. Other topics that were discussed in detail include optimization methods for managing streaming data from sensors and satellites, the integration of diverse geo-science datasets, eﬃcient methods for data searching, analysis and visualization for data explorations, and new types of scientiﬁc data management systems.
