    THOR is a framework for providing seamless access to HPC systems composed of heterogeneous resources. Our work focuses on the core module, in particular the policy engine. To validate our approach, THOR has been implemented on a scaled-down heterogeneous cluster within a cloud-based computational environment. Our testing includes an Open CL encryption/decryption algorithm that was tested for several use cases. T
