OBOE is the Oxford Batch Operation Engine. Its purpose is to provide the background computing power for services made available to users via Scratchpads, the OBOE machine API, or OBOE's own web interface. Services are computer programs that might normally be run as self-contained command-line applications. With OBOE these programs are deployed as cloud computing services making the software requirements and mechanisms entirely transparent to the user. Users are freed from the overheads of computing and can concentrate exclusively on the outputs and results.
This site is the human front-end for users developed as part of WP5. All services available here can also be accessed via the machine API.
