A UNICORE Plugin for HPC-Enabled Scientific Workflows in Taverna 2.2
Washington, DC USA
July 04-July 09

As scientific workflows are becoming more complex and apply compute-intensive methods to increasingly large data volumes, access to HPC resources is becoming mandatory. We describe the development of a novel plug in for the Tavern a workflow system, which provides transparent and secure access to HPC/grid resources via the UNICORE grid middleware, while maintaining the ease of use that has been the main reason for the success of scientific workflow systems. A use case from the bioinformatics domain demonstrates the potential of the UNICORE plug in for Tavern a by creating a scientific workflow that executes the central parts in parallel on a cluster resource.
