    Lessons Learned from Applying Big Data Paradigms to a Large Scale Scientific Workflow
    (: CEUR-WS.org, 2016-11-14)
    The increasing amount of data related to the execution of scientific workflows has raised awareness of their shift towards parallel data-intensive problems. In this paper, we deliver our experience with combining the traditional high-performance computing and grid-based approaches for scientific workflows, with Big Data analytics paradigms. Our goal was to assess and discuss the suitability of such data-intensive-oriented mechanisms for production-ready workflows, especially in terms of scalability, focusing on a key element in the Big Data ecosystem: the data-centric programming model. Hence, we reproduced the functionality of a MPI-based iterative workflow from the hydrology domain, EnKF-HGS, using the Spark data analysis framework. We conducted experiments on a local cluster, and we relied on our results to discuss promising directions for further research.

    The field of hydrology usually relies on complex multiphysics systems and data collected from geographically distributed sensors in order to obtain good quality predictions and analysis of how wa- ter moves through the environment. Nowadays, the computational resources needed to run such com- plex simulators, and the increasing size of datasets related to the models have arisen an interest to- wards distributed infrastructures like clouds. This paper presents the results of applying a cloudifica- tion methodology to a legacy hydrological simulator (HydroGeoSphere), wrapped with an ensemble Kal- man filter. This work describes how the methodology was applied, the particularities of its implementation and configuration for the Apache Spark iterative map- reduce platform, and the results of an evaluation in a commodity cluster against an MPI implementation of the simulator.
