Web-based infrastructure architecture composed of server side representation and client side presentation + data analysis computational services. This disposition moves to the client side both the assembly of interfaces as well as the computational intensive data analysis services - such as computational statistics modules. As a consequence, all server side components are standardized and can therefore benefit from cloud computing scaling.
