The Challenges of Scaling up Scientific Computing Workflow with Container Technology
With the fast evolved infrastructure and steadily dropping price of cloud computing, the interest in migrating high-throughput scientific workflow to the cloud is growing rapidly. Rather than be limited to the traditional HPC centers, scientific workflows can be run on commercial cloud that not only make use of new technology but also scale up the workflow to required degree. However, high-throughput workflows often have unique characteristics that might not fit into standard cloud environment.

The author propose that to scale up high-throughput workflows with new technologies or platforms, there is a set of rules need to be followed, More specifically, the author discusses the challenges met when trying to expand the scale of high-throughput workflows with container runtimes and container orchestrator, explain how to approach these challenges for adapting emerging technologies and platforms for high-throughput workflows.
