Opportunities and Challenges for Running Scientific Workflows on the Cloud
Cloud computing is gaining tremendous momentum in both academia and industry. The application of Cloud computing, however, has mostly focused on Web applications and business applications; while the recognition of using Cloud computing to support large-scale workflows, especially data-intensive scientific workflows on the Cloud is still largely overlooked. The authors coin the term "Cloud Workflow", to refer to the specification, execution, provenance tracking of large-scale scientific workflows, as well as the management of data and computing resources to enable the execution of scientific workflows on the Cloud.
