The revalidation, reinterpretation and reuse of research data analyses requires having access to the original computing environment, the experimental datasets, the analysis software, and the computational workflow steps which were used by researchers to produce the original scientific results in the first place. REANA (Reusable Analyses) is a nascent platform enabling researchers to structure their research data analyses in view of enabling future reuse. The analysis is described by means of a… 
Support for HTCondor high-Throughput Computing Workflows in the REANA Reusable Analysis Platform

Building a Kubernetes infrastructure for CERN’s Content Management Systems
This work designed a new Web Frameworks platform by extending Kubernetes to replace the ageing physical infrastructure and reduce the dependency on homebrew components and presents the new system’s open-source design contrasted with the one it replaces, demonstrating how it drastically reduced its technical debt.
Science Capsule - Capturing the Data Life Cycle
Reconcibility of scientific data and workflows facilitates efficient processing and analyses and a key to enabling reproducibility is to capture the end-to-end workflow life cycle, and any contextual metadata and provenance.
Neuroscience Cloud Analysis As a Service
NeuroCAAS is a fully automated analysis platform that makes state-of-the-art data analysis tools accessible to the neuroscience community and removes barriers to fast, efficient cloud computation, which can dramatically accelerate both the dissemination and the effective use of cutting-edge analysis tools for neuroscientific discovery.

The Effects of FreeSurfer Version, Workstation Type, and Macintosh Operating System Version on Anatomical Volume and Cortical Thickness Measurements
The main conclusion is that users are discouraged to update to a new major release of either FreeSurfer or operating system or to switch to a different type of workstation without repeating the analysis; results thus give a quantitative support to successive recommendations stated by FreeSurf developers over the years.
