Rapid development of computational web portals

Presentation Type: 

Rapid is a cost-effective and efficient way of designing and delivering portal interfaces to applications that require remote compute resources. The aim of Rapid is to make completing these tasks as simple as ordering a DVD or booking a flight on the web.

The philosophy of Rapid is to deliver customised graphical user interfaces that enable domain specialists to achieve their tasks. These tasks make use of domain-specific applications that run on remote compute resources; a requirement which is satisfied by translating the task into one or several computational jobs to be performed on Grid and Cloud Computing infrastructures, and High-Performance Computing facilities.

Customised interfaces allow tasks to be performed without referring to terminology about the underlying computational infrastructure. Moreover, the system allows to expose particular features of applications as not to overwhelm the user.
