OGC 'apps to the data' architecture successfully applied: The Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) Compute Challenge

The OGC Engineering Report OGC 19-003: Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) Compute Challenge has now been published using the information gained from the Earth System Grid Federation extension to OGC Testbed-14, which successfully concluded in June, 2019. 

The T-14 ESGF extension demonstrated impressively how the ‘applications to the data’ architecture, developed in Testbed-13 and Testbed-14, is applicable to climate simulation data processing and analysis. The architecture builds on Web Processing Service profiles and metadata models to allow application developers to make their applications available to the community via Docker containers.
