Many scientific applications require access to remote storage and compute facilities. Unfortunately, there is not a single standardized way to access these facilities. There are many competing protocols and tools in use by the various scientific data centers and commercial online providers.
We have the expertise on which protocols and tools to use in which situations. In addition we have created Xenon, a simple, unified programming interface to many remote computation and data storage facilities, and Osmium, a web service interface to Xenon that allows easy integration into web applications.
By applying such advanced deployment tools, we can automate the management of complex computations tasks, making them easy to use for the scientists.
