Reproducing Scientific Experiment with Cloud DevOps

by   Feng Zhao, et al.

The reproducibility of scientific experiment is vital for the advancement of disciplines based on previous work. To achieve this goal, many researchers focus on complex methodology and self-invented tools which have difficulty in practical usage. In this article, we introduce the DevOps infrastructure from software engineering community and shows how DevOps can be used effectively to reproduce experiments for computer science related disciplines. DevOps can be enabled using freely available cloud computing machines for medium sized experiment and self-hosted computing engines for large scale computing, thus powering researchers to share their experiment result with others in a more reliable way.
