The Pegasus Workflow Management System encompasses a set of technologies which help workflow-based applications execute in a number of different environments, including desktops, campus clusters, grids, and clouds. It bridges the scientific domain and the execution environment by automatically mapping high-level workflow descriptions onto distributed resources. It automatically locates the necessary input data and computational resources necessary for workflow execution. It enables scientists to construct workflows in abstract terms without worrying about the details of the underlying execution environment or the particulars of the low-level specifications required by the middleware (Condor, Globus, or Amazon EC2). It bridges the current cyberinfrastructure by effectively coordinating multiple distributed resources.
TomP2P is a P2P-based high performance key-value pair storage library. Each peer has a table (either disk-based or memory-based) to store its values. A single value can be queried or updated with a secondary key. The underlying communication framework uses Java NIO to handle many concurrent connections.
EC2Dream Fogviz is a visual tool for building and managing cloud servers. It combines Fog, Ruby, and Chef into a tool that is particularly helpful when developing and testing Chef automation scripts. It currently supports Amazon AWS, Eucalyptus Cloud, and CloudStack including VPC, autoscaling, and the ability to list most entities., and Openstack clouds: Rackspace, HP Cloud, and CloudFoundry Open Platform.
uma::bson is a DOM-style C++ API for reading/writing BSON data. Unlike the MongoDB C++ API, which exposes a read-only interface with a separate interface for creating a BSON representation, this API allows reading/writing on the existing data. The API is designed primarily for serialising/deserialising BSON data to/from streams (files, socket connections, etc.).
