e-Science Central in Windows Azure

As part of the VENUS-C Project, Jacek is porting e-Science Central to run on Windows Azure. The initial version will run inside a Windows Server 2008 VM. Following on, we will be focussing on deploying the e-Science Central workflow engine directly into a Worker Role.  This will connect to the main e-Science Central installation and allow users to schedule their workflows in Azure.  We will be using this to perform large scale QSAR modelling in the VENUS-C project (as a follow on to Project Junior).  We hope to have a test implementation in a few weeks, ready to demonstrate at the VENUS-C technical meeting.
