With the increasing popularity of open-source platform Hadoop, the meteorological industry is available to create a Meteorological Cloud (MeteCloud) platform to store and deploy applications. In this paper, the authors propose an idea to build the MeteCloud platform for meteorological departments using Hadoop. They also present a backup policy for meteorological data. In addition, one kind of storage process of the meteorological A-format file is presented. Furthermore, they experiment with one-year historical data on the platform by varying many related parameters such as the number of nodes, meteorological records and fields.
