BioExcel Building Blocks - Infrastructures


Workflows built using the BioExcel Building Blocks have been tested in a broad range of computational infrastructures:

  • Desktop / PC (direct or using VirtualBox)
  • Private Cloud (OpenNebula, OpenStack)
  • Public Cloud (EGI, EMBL-EBI EMBASSY Cloud)
  • HPC (CPU-based supercomputers, GPU-based supercomputers)

Besides, a couple of web server implementations are being developed:

  • A REST API server to remotely execute building blocks, using the openAPI descriptions, and with a graphical interface implemented using the Swagger framework.
  • A web-based Graphical User Interface to run pre-configured workflows, with connection to HPC centers.
