The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope is a massive optical survey that will produce half an Exabyte of image data. Even if we only cared about the resulting catalogues, the 7 trillion row database naturally pushes us to a “bring your code to the data” regime. But astronomical data exploration is an iterative process that is ill suited to traditional batch computing models for most of its lifecycle. Here I will discuss how the architecture and implementation of the Notebook Aspect of the LSST Science Platform addresses the challenges of providing a typically interactive experience on a datacenter-side service. This talk will be of interest to those building and deploying science-facing data services, as well as those who are interested in a preview of the LSST user experience.
