In this thesis, we have considered how an integrated database architecture can enrich a runtime environment for control flow-oriented simulation workflows. We have taken a look at typical requirements of scientific and simulation workflows towards their data integration and have derived requirements for the integrated database architecture. We have developed three scenarios that put data provisioning aspects of traditional simulation software and simulation workflows in concrete terms. We have then discussed possible optimizations for simulations that can be classified to one of the scenarios. Furthermore, we have defined functional requirements to the database architecture. A possible integration of the database architecture into a workflow runtime environment based on BPEL as the control-flow oriented workflow language and Apache ODE as the workflow engine has been proposed. Therefore, we have presented how the integrated database architecture can exploit the potential of the ongoing student project SIMPL. Since the student project is yet to be finished, an alternative architecture for the sake of evaluation and prototyping within this thesis has been suggested.
