Connecting Scientists to HPC, Cloud and Big Data.
Introduction
============
The Chiminey system is a cloud-based computing platform that enables scientists to perform complex computation on cloud-based and traditional high performance computing (HPC) facilities, and to handle failure during the execution of their application.
The Chiminey system is a cloud-based computing platform that enables scientists to perform complex computation on cloud-based and traditional high performance computing (HPC) facilities, and to handle failure during the execution of their application.
This system gives special importance to resource access and management abstraction. Scientists are not expected to have a technical understanding of cloud-computing, HPC, or, big data fault tolerance in order to leverage the benefits provided by the Chiminey
platform.

Chiminey provides
* Definition, execution and monitoring of high-performance, big data, and cloud computing applications.
* A user interface that focusses both on the domain-specific parts of a task for scientists and a framework that allows IT research engineers
to build computation tasks.

The Bioscience Data Platform
----------------------------
Chiminey is a key product of the `Bioscience Data Platform: Tardis in the Cloud project <http://bioscience-data-platform.tumblr.com/>`_, which is a prject beween Monash University and RMIT University, Victoria Australia funded by NeCTAR. This project fosuses on bringing existing computational systems together in a way that allows scientists to seemslessly work with data from capture through to publication.

Documentation
=============
A Getting Started tutorial is available at `http://chiminey.readthedocs.org/ <http://chiminey.readthedocs.org/>`_, which walks through installation and running simple and then more complicated examples.
.. An installation manual is available at https://github.com/chiminey/docker-chiminey.
.. The user manual is available at [readthedocs] (http://chiminey.readthedocs.org/en/latest/enduser_manual.html) .
