Cloud computing is gaining tremendous momentum in both academia and industry. The application of Cloud computing, however, has mostly focused on Web applications and business applications; while the recognition of using Cloud computing to support large-scale workflows, especially dataintensive scientific workflows on the Cloud is still largely overlooked. We coin the term "Cloud Workflow", to refer to the specification, execution, provenance tracking of large-scale scientific workflows, as well
more &raquo; ... as the management of data and computing resources to enable the execution of scientific workflows on the Cloud. In this paper, we analyze why there has been such a gap between the two technologies, and what it means to bring Cloud and workflow together; we then present the key challenges in running Cloud workflow, and discuss the research opportunities in realizing workflows on the Cloud.
