I'm working on creating a replication client for the Earth System Grid (ESG) initiative. ESG was set up to help climate reseachers around the world share and aggregate data. You can learn more at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research's ESG Portal page.
My client will interface with the pre-existing metadata query service, bulk data movement client, and publishing client in order to replicate data from one physical location to another. This replication process will help increase the fault tolerance of the ESG system, and will also allow for faster downloads of datasets by allowing data to be located in closer physical proximity to users worldwide.
