I got several times this kind of exception.
In general it means that on server where the process is run does not exists specific exchange configuration.
In your case you should check the configuration named "local.workflow.data-".

In details: this exception it seems to be thrown during creation a task. Among data variables in process exists at least one stored externally (by default it is FileDataType - this is configured on page "Storage Preferences" in projects settings).
Data stored externally are using seperate exchange config which name is provided in project properties named "ExternalStorageExchangeName". I suppose in your case it is set to "local.workflow.data-". In debug mode is used different exchange config which name is provided in properties named "DebugExternalStorageExchangeName".
