The orchestration of complex application workflows executed in the context of High Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructures requires the joint collaboration of application designers/developers, HPC engineers and application consumers (i.e. end-users). In the context of HPC, complex workflows can be executed with either HPC schedulers (e.g. Slurm), workflow managers (e.g. PyCOMPSs, NextFlow), with meta-orchestrators (e.g. Croupier) or with a combination of them. While schedulers and workflow managers are restricted to execute applications within a single HPC cluster, Croupier supports cross-platform application delivery, execution, monitoring and data management.

In this webinar, we will introduce Croupier from the application designers and consumers perspective, and the use of Croupier, with a demo on how to deploy, execute and monitor one of the PerMedCoE use case applications.
