Workflows are an application model that enables the automated execution of multiple interdependent and interconnected tasks. They are widely used by the scientific community to manage the distributed execution and dataflow of complex simulations and experiments. As the popularity of scientific workflows continue to rise, and their computational requirements continue to increase, the emergence and adoption of multi-tenant computing platforms that offer the execution of these workflows as a service becomes widespread. This article discusses the scheduling and resource provisioning problems particular to this type of platform. It presents a detailed taxonomy and a comprehensive survey of the current literature and identifies future directions to foster research in the field of multiple workflow scheduling in multi-tenant distributed computing systems.
