Abstract: In this poster, we present an approach to running workflow applications on distributed resources, including systems without support for remote job submission. We show how this approach extends the benefits of scientific workflows, such as job and data management, to large-scale applications on open-science HPC resources such as Blue Waters, Stampede, and USC HPCC. We demonstrate this approach with SCEC CyberShake, a physics-based seismic hazard application, to run over 470 million tasks via 32,000 jobs submitted to Blue Waters and Stampede.
