Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between OpenMOLE and SimExplorer? Why two projects?

OpenMOLE is dedicated to the design and execution of computational workflows, and the managing of the execution process including distribution on grid. SimExplorer is an application that relies on OpenMOLE for designing workflows specifics to numerical models exploration. We have choose to made separate projects because the underlayer project OpenMOLE has grown and need more visibility beyond the models exploration business.
