tools? (No agency or lab “owns” these, but they are critical infrastructure.) • Who provides cloud-style computing to the science community? • How do we avoid data silos? (I want both NASA + NOAA data in the same place) • How do we train (and retrain) scientists to feel comfortable with new tools cloud-native workﬂows?
