Overview

Dray allows users to separate a workflow into discrete steps each to be handled by a single container. This isolation makes efficient use of compute resources and also allows workflows to be easily changed, extended or re-composed via this loosely coupled architecture.

  • Consumes description of the workflow to be executed
  • Starts containers in the correct order
  • Marshals data between each workflow step
  • Shuts down containers once their work is done
  • Monitors the execution & status of the workflow
