Blog from August, 2023

As announced in previous communications, we have enabled the access to the new cloud infrastructure at ECMWF Bologna providing the European Weather Cloud service, which will replace the pilot infrastructure you may have been using up to now.

We would like to remind and invite you to review your currently deployed resources on the pilot infrastructure and start the migration to the new cloud. Since no virtual infrastructure, applications or data will be moved automatically, we strongly encourage you to check Migration of the European Weather Cloud at ECMWF to learn what changed, what is already available and what steps you need to take to ensure a smooth transition.

You are invited to start deploying your applications in the new cloud, as well as copying over any data you wish to keep using.

If you have any virtual machines or infrastructure that would not be easily recreated and you would need assistance to perform the migration of your cloud resources, please do get in contact with us through the European Weather Cloud Support Portal by the 15th of September.

We would aim to address the main migrations activities by the end of September.

We remain available to offer you all the needed support and assistance you might require and we would like to thank you in advance for your collaboration.

We are pleased to announce the registration for the new edition of the European Weather Cloud User Workshop is open. The event will be completely virtual on 26 September 2023.

We will cover new aspects of the EWC and different ways to benefit from it as we enter the operational phase. We will also give the floor to current users with interesting use cases and discuss the plans for the future evolution of the EWC. We will combine presentations from ECMWF, EUMETSAT, and EWC Users, as well as interactive sessions for discussions, feedback, and exchange of ideas.

You may find the agenda and additional details here.

The workshop is organised jointly by ECMWF and EUMETSAT and is open to their Member and Co-operating States. If you meet the attendance criteria and would like to participate, we would kindly ask you to complete the registration form before 19 September.

We would also like to take this opportunity to ask you for a few minutes of your time to help us to shape the training offering for the European Weather Cloud by participating to the following survey:

We look forward to seeing you at the European Weather Cloud User Workshop!
