SAGA is a distributed computing standard which defines a high-level interface to the most commonly used distributed computing functionality. The main goals of SAGA are: Provide a uniform access-layer to heterogeneous distributed computing infrastructures and middleware; Provide a stable programming interface for distributed applications, frameworks and tool development; Lower the application deployment barrier on production Cyber-Infrastructure; Provide the building blocks to enable the design and implementation of higher-level abstractions in support of distributed application requirements. The SAGA-Project led by the RADICAL Group at Rutgers University and is an ongoing effort to coordinate the standard and open source SAGA implementations and to promote a standards-based and abstraction-driven approach to distributed computing. SAGA serves as the interoperability layer for multiple tools and applications, including SAGA-BigJob.
