FutureGrid provides novel computing capabilities that enable reproducible experiments while simultaneously supporting dynamic provisioning. This paper describes the FutureGrid experiment management framework to create and execute large scale scientific experiments for researchers around the globe. The experiments executed are performed by the various users of FutureGrid ranging from administrators to software developers and end users. The Experiment management framework will consist of software tools that record user and system actions to generate a reproducible set of tasks and resource configurations. Additionally, the experiment management framework can be used to share not only the experiment setup, but also performance information for the specific instantiation of the experiment. This makes it possible to compare a variety of experiment setups and analyze the impact Grid and Cloud software stacks have.
