Barcelona Dust Forecast Center: Activity Report 2016

by Enric Terradellas, Sara Basart, Francesco Benincasa and Kim Serradell

The most remarkable aspect of the report is that, although the system has been operating over 99% of the time, a plan has been designed to reduce disruptions and ensure higher availability of products. The plan is based on adding redundancy and eliminating single points of failure. Its main elements are:


  • Duplication of the Center's main server at the AEMET headquarters (Madrid, Spain).

  • Duplication of the model run on the Nimbus (Bull) cluster, also at AEMET headquarters


The projected system architecture is represented in the Figure below.
