A Brief Introduction to Cloud Native Approaches for Big Data Analysis

March 20, 2023
by Millie Chapman. Satellites, smart phones, and other monitoring technologies are creating vast amounts of data about our earth every day. These data hold promise to provide global insights on everything from biodiversity patterns to human activity at increasingly fine spatial and temporal resolution. But leveraging this information often requires us to work with data that is too big to fit in our computer's "working memory" (RAM) or even to download to our computer's hard drive. In this post, I walk through tools, terms, and examples to get started with cloud native workflows. These workflows allow us to remotely access and query large data from online resources or web services, all while skipping the download step!

Gaby May Lagunes


Hello! I’m Gaby (she/her). I am PhD student at the ESPM department, I hold a masters in Data Science and Information from the Berkeley ISchool and I have 5+ years of industrial experience in different data roles. Before that I got a masters in Engineering for International Development and an undergraduate degree in Physics from University College London. And somewhere between all that I got married, survived the pandemic, and had two awesome boys. I’m very excited to help you use data to enhance your work and your experience here at Berkeley!
