Providing computing solutions for exascale challenges
The IEE provides a web based graphical portal for accessing HPC infrastructure.
IEE works by providing access to configurable computational pipelines which represent individual use cases. Each pipeline may be launched an arbitrary number of times, with varying parameters. IEE takes care of marshalling the required resources, scheduling data transfers and executing the computational steps which make up the use cases. IEE can schedule computations on traditional HPC resources (computing clusters) and cloud resources (via the Cloudify extension). It can also communicate with bespoke REST interfaces offered by providers of external computational services. IEE manages the required delegation of security credentials and abstracts away all details related to interaction with various types of computational resources.
