D4.2 Programming models - Prototypes

This document describes the implementation of the programming model prototypes developed as a part of the EUBrazil Cloud Connect platform. The programming models offer the tools to implement user scenarios and execute them on the federated infrastructure. COMPSs and e‐Science Central are the two available frameworks for the porting of the scenarios. This report details how the architectural choices and the use case requirements have been translated into developments and extensions of the programming frameworks. It also takes into account interoperability issues and the standards implementation plan.

D5.3 Final Report on Use Cases implementation

This deliverable reports about the implementation status of the three use cases at the end of the project. The consistent evolution of the platform that support the applications led to a smooth evolution in the development of the use cases. As the interfaces have not been changed, applications evolved implementing new functionalities and relying on the components to cope with the issues of the infrastructure. This document is complemented with deliverable D5.4 “Validation report on the EUBrazilCC platform”, which covers a deeper analysis of the usability and reliability of the components and the applications.

D5.4 Validation Report on EUBrazilCC platform

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.
