Deriving insights from data is foundational to nearly every organization, and many researches process high volumes of data every day. One common requirement of customers in life sciences is the need to analyze these data in a high-throughput fashion without sacrificing time-to-insight. Such analyses, which tend to be composed of a series of massively parallel processes (MPP) are well suited to the AWS Cloud.

In this session, we will introduce you to AWS and then show you how to set up genomics workflows on AWS. We will also show to users how to optimize Amazon EC2 Spot Instances use and save up to 90% off of traditional On-Demand prices.

Note: this approach to batch processing can be generalized to any type of batch workflow so anyone is welcome to attend.
