The LEXIS Platform allows the orchestration of complex scientific and industrial workflows which can be easily run on distributed HPC and Cloud resources. Thanks to its API and modern web-based UI, powerful HPC resources and complex Cloud deployments can be easily accessed and challenging workflows can be executed. It uses YORC (Ystia Orchestrator) to handle the workflows, an iRODS-based data management solution with asynchronous staging APIs, and integration with EUDAT services to handle extensive datasets in a secure and convenient way.
The individual LEXIS software modules have been implemented, deployed and integrated into the resulting LEXIS Platform, which has been successfully validated, tested and exposed on a public endpoint. The LEXIS Portal is the web-based UI through which users can use all the features of the platform, including an overview of consumed resources and their costs. The LEXIS Platform implements multi-tenancy by grouping users in different roles in organisations and projects through which the compute resources are consumed.
