The Integrated Tokamak Modelling Task Force (ITM-TF) is developing an infrastructure where the validation needs, as being formulated in terms of multi-device data access and detailed physics comparisons aiming for inclusion of synthetic diagnostics in the simulation chain, are key components. A device independent approach to data transport and a(More)
The Kepler scientific workflow system enables creation, execution and sharing of work-flows across a broad range of scientific and engineering disciplines while also facilitating remote and distributed execution of workflows. In this paper, we present and compare different approaches to distributed execution of workflows using the Kepler environment,(More)
The interoperability of e-Science infrastructures like DEISA/PRACE and EGEE/EGI is an increasing demand for a wide variety of cross-Grid applications, but interoperability based on common open standards adopted by Grid middleware is only starting to emerge and is not broadly provided today. In earlier work, we have shown how refined open standards form a(More)
A case study on climate models intercomparison data analysis addressing several classes of multi-model experiments is being implemented in the context of the EU H2020 INDIGO-DataCloud project. Such experiments require the availability of large amount of data (multi-terabyte order) related to the output of several climate models simulations as well as the(More)
Facing computing and data intensive problems scientists are forced to use all the available resources to solve their problems. This applies to the usage of different distributed e-Infrastructures based on different concepts and architectures. Providing the end user with easy access to such complex systems is a very challenging task and refers to the issues(More)
In this paper we describe the architecture of a Platform as a Service (PaaS) oriented to computing and data analysis. In order to clarify the choices we made, we explain the features using practical examples, applied to several known usage patterns in the area of HEP computing. The proposed architecture is devised to provide researchers with a unified view(More)
This paper describes the "fusion plasma application" which is developed within the "Interactive European Grid" (int.eu.grid), making use of its architecture to produce interactive visualisation of a distributed simulation executing on the grid. In properly combining and, where necessary, adopting the building blocks "migrating desktop" (MD), "roaming access(More)
This paper describes chosen aspects of the European Integrated Tokamak Modelling Task Force (ITM-TF) effort. It covers topics related to latest developments towards providing fusion scientists with a software framework for fusion modeling and simulation. The proposed framework provides researchers with an easy to use, workflow based environment for(More)
