A platform allowing users to exploit cloud resources for running containerised batch workloads.
Run jobs from anywhere
Submit jobs using a simple batch system style command line interface from your desktop. And your latop. Or from anywhere else as there are no login nodes. Alternatively, interact programmatically using a RESTful API.
Run jobs without worrying about managing servers or clusters. All infrastructure provisioning is handled completely automatically and transparently.
Go beyond a single cluster or cloud and leverage the resources and features available across many clouds simultaneously. No VPNs, tunnels or any special networking is required.
Reliability and reproducibility
All jobs are run in containers to ensure they will can run reliably anywhere and are reproducible.
Run multi-node Open MPI, Intel MPI or MPICH jobs in addition to single-node high-throughput jobs.
Construct complex workflows by specifying the dependencies between different jobs, or run large numbers of similar jobs, for example for parameter scans, based on templates.
Jobs can access data from object storage or in a POSIX-like way from OneData or WebDAV (including B2DROP).
