SHIWA Simulation Platform
The ER-flow project uses and integrates technologies from various projects and scientific collaborations. These technologies are brought together by the SHIWA Simulation Platform (a service package designed for workflow-oriented scientific collaborations), maintained by an open collaboration.
The platform supports various Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCIs) such as: clouds (Amazon and Openstack) as well as service grids (gLite, Globus and UNICORE) . The interoperability solution includes various workflow systems such as: Askalon, Galaxy, Kepler, Moteur, Pegasus, PGRADE, ProActive, Taverna, Triana and WS-PGRADE. By using the SHIWA platform the research communities have freedom to choose from a large variety of workflow management systems, infrastructures or middleware to implement their Virtual Research Environments.
ER-flow software services
- SHIWA Repository: a database of workflows and related meta-data, used to search and share workflows within and among scientific communities.
- SHIWA Portal: a web portal integrated with the SHIWA Repository and with various workflow engines that orchestrate workflows from the Repository on different e-infrastructures.
- SHIWA Submission Service: support of many distributed computing infrastructures and many workflow engines
- Workflow engines: the ASKALON, Galaxy, GWES, Kepler, LONI Pipeline, MOTEUR, P-GRADE, PEGASUS, ProActive, Taverna, Triana and WS-PGRADE workflow engines are already integrated with the SHIWA Simulation Platform. Other engines can be added when required.
