Cloud computing offers significant advantages for the hosting of RSC chemistry databases in terms of reliability, performance and access to large scale computational power. The ChemSpider database contains almost 30 million unique chemical compounds and access to compute power to regenerate properties and add new properties is essential for efficient delivery on a manageable timescale. The use of cloud-based facilities reduces the needs for internal infrastructure and enhances performance generally at the cost of significant recoding of the platforms. This presentation will review our move of our ChemSpider related projects to the cloud, the associated challenges and both the obvious and unforeseen benefits. We will also discuss our use of parallelization technologies for mass calculation using Hadoop.
