The cyberinfrastructure supporting science will include large-scale simulation systems headed to exascale combined with cloud like systems supporting data intensive and high throughput computing, pleasingly parallel jobs and the long tail of science. Clouds offer economies of scale, elasticity supporting real time and interactive use and powerful new programming models such as MapReduce. The authors stress that iterative extensions of MapReduce will be necessary to get good performance on for several data mining (analytics) applications. They give several illustrations mainly from bioinformatics.
