The combination of a network infrastructure with cloud-based services offers a methodology to create workflows for the computation of effects in short up to long-term experiments. Each experiment is described in a workflow that binds services to fulfill specific tasks. The distributed infrastructure consists out of a scalable distributed platform that allows a flexible handling of tasks reducing dependency on one central location. This paper presents the concept and realization of a cloud platform that uses workflows to describe sequences of complex tasks of experiments in a dynamic and editable way. These workflows can be easily created, accessed, adapted and combined with the help of the developed tool-chain. Individual fabrication steps are associated with interoperable and reusable services.
