BIOINFORMATICS IN THE AWS CLOUD
Monday, October 24, 2016 | 1:30 - 4:30 pm


ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP:

Cloud is the quickly becoming the new normal for Bio-IT. Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers a wide array of products that can be pieced together to support diverse workloads for scientific computing. This workshop covers the foundational AWS products of compute, storage, and databases necessary for research workflows. We will dive deep into Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), and what to use when for research computing. Finally, we will cover High-Performance Computing on AWS and introduce the CloudFormation provisioning and orchestration service. This workshop will be hands-on with self-paced tutorials as well as live demos as time permits.
