This document includes a quantitative and qualitative assessment of user scenarios, platform components and infrastructure resources. It also describes the special features added to the different components of the EUBrazilCC platform and the general-purpose use cases that can be implemented on top of it.
The EUBrazilCC platform comprises 7 components that address scientific gateways, data analytics, data workflow execution, scalable parallel programming, automatic infrastructure deployment, batch-queue based and cloud resource federation. By combining the components users can deploy a variety of virtual appliances from single VMs to scalable parallel programs or data analytic clusters, on top of a federated infrastructure. Components are interoperable and expose a well-defined interface that enable adding their features.
