The Outercurve Foundation (formerly CodePlex) announced the creation of “Research Accelerators Gallery,” the organization’s 3rd gallery and the first established to meet an industry need, rather than address a specific technology.
Outercurve also said “The Scientific Workflow Workbench (code named Project Trident), built on Windows Workflow Foundation, has been accepted as the gallery’s anchor project. Project Trident provides scientists with graphical tools for creating, running, managing and sharing workflows for analyzing large, diverse datasets.
The workbench includes provenance services, optional integration with Windows HPC Server 2008, and ability to publish and reuse workflows from MyExperiment.org. Developers can extend Scientific Workflow Workbench by implementing custom components to handle specialized processing requirements for data collection, data analysis, and data visualization.”
The workbench is available under the Apache 2.0 open source license and was contributed to the foundation by Microsoft Research.
