The purpose of this application is to demonstrate that running of complex scientific models can be conducted also from the web environment using a small home-made cluster powered by multiple OpenShift gears.
Distributed computational framework originally developed for DSS was modified for deployment on OpenShift and powers a simple Gaussian puff model simulating aerial propagation of a radioactive noble gas 41Ar.
The framework runs on multiple OpenShift gears. One gear serves CherryPy web-server providing web interface and a task manager serving a task queue. Tasks inserted into the queue by users are processed by computatinal nodes (workers) hosted on different gears.
