Meeting Themes

A reminder that we have six key themes for this workshop:

  *   Exploring different technologies for storage and querying (SQL, noSQL, Hadoop, Elasticsearch, etc, what works and what doesn't)
  *   Beyond Data Storage (What services should archives offer and what do they currently?)
  *   Interoperability (incl. IVOA)
  *   Tools (incl. access control and code-to-the-data)
  *   User Interfaces and User Experience
  *   Hardware (incl. cloud vs hosted vs hybrid)
