Batch Services

Dockstore tools and workflows can also be run through a number of online services that we’re going to loosely call “commercial batch services.” These services share the following characteristics: they spin up the underlying infrastructure and run commands, often in Docker containers, while freeing you from running the batch computing software yourself. While not having any understanding of CWL, these services can be used naively to run tools and workflows, and in a more sophisticated way to implement a CWL-compatible workflow engine.
