Abstract: Provenance has been thought of a mechanism to verify a workflow and to provide workflow reproducibility. This provenance of scientific workflows has been effectively carried out in Grid based scientific workflow systems. However, recent adoption of Cloud-based scientific workflows present an opportunity to investigate the suitability of existing approaches or propose new approaches to collect provenance information from the Cloud and to utilize it for workflow reproducibility on the Cloud infrastructure. This paper presents a novel approach that can assist in mitigating this challenge. This approach can collect Cloud infrastructure information along with workflow provenance and can establish a mapping between them to provide a Cloud-aware provenance. The reproducibility of the workflow execution is performed by: (a) capturing the Cloud infrastructure information (virtual machine configuration) along with the workflow provenance, (b) re-provisioning the similar resources on the Cloud a nd re-executing the workflow on them and (c) by comparing the outputs of workflows. The evaluation of the prototype suggests that the proposed approach is feasible and can be investigated further. Since there is no reference model for workflow reproducibility on Cloud exists in the literature, this paper also attempts to present a model that is used in the proposed design to achieve workflow reproducibility in the Cloud environment.
