USING CLOUDS FOR SCIENCE, IS IT JUST KICKING THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD?

Ewa Deelman, Gideon Juve, G. Bruce Berriman

Abstract

In this paper we describe issues related to the execution of scientific workflows on clouds, giving particular emphasis to the challenges faced by scientists when using grids and clouds for workflows. We also mention some existing solutions and identify areas requiring additional work.
