Serpens suite for Kepler

Serpens project

Serpens suite for Kepler is a set of actors, composites and workflows that provide support for different grid middleware stacks - (e.g. gLite and UNICORE). The extension covers the standard activities related to remote job management: job submission, monitoring, data handling, and so on.

Kepler is free and open source application for scientific workflow management. Kepler is designed to help scientists and developers to create, execute, and share models (workflows) that can refer to broad range of scientific and engineering disciplines. Kepler ships with a searchable library containing over 350, ready to use processing components ('actors'). These can be easily customized, connected, and then run (as a workflow) from a desktop like environment. Actors can perform calculations, automatic data management, or even execution of external applications.

Serpens was developed as part of EUFORIA project - currently it is supported in the EGI_Inspire. Serpens development is based on various projects: Migrating Desktop, Kepler, VineToolkit, Unicore - feel free to click logos to visit home pages of corresponding projects.
