Abstract : Recently, some Scientific Workflow Management Systems (SWfMSs) with provenance support (e.g. Chiron) have been deployed in the cloud. However, they typically use a single cloud site. In this paper, we consider a multisite cloud, where the data and computing resources are distributed at different sites (possibly in different regions). Based on a multisite architecture of SWfMS, i.e. multisite Chiron, we propose a multisite task scheduling algorithm that considers the time to generate provenance data. We performed an experimental evaluation of our algorithm using Microsoft Azure multisite cloud and two real-life scientific workflows, i.e. Buzz and Montage. The results show that our scheduling algorithm is up to 49.6% better than baseline algorithms in terms of execution time.
