Why Cloud Computing?―A shift to cloud computing creates an opportunity for many organizations torealize efficiencies not possible with their existing infrastructure.‖ – Forbes
NIH 1000 Genomes Project―Putting the data in the AWS cloud provides a tremendousopportunity for researchers around the world who want tostudy large-scale human genetic variation but lack thecomputer ability to do so.‖ – Richard Durbin, Co-Director ofthe 1000 Genomes Project AWS now holds the world’s largest set of data on human genetic variation 200 terabytes — the equivalent of 16 million file cabinets filled with text, or more than 30,000 standard DVDs Prime example of big data that has become so massive that few researchers have the computing power to use them
Harvard Medical School―We believe our models may dramatically reduce the time it usuallytakes to identify the tests, protocols, and trials that are worth pursuingaggressively for both FDA approval and clinical use.‖ – Dr. PeterTonellato, Laboratory for Personalized Medicine of the Center ofBiomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School The power of high throughput sequencing and biomedical data collection technologies paired with the flexibility of AWS Developed innovative whole genome analysis testing models in record time
TASER―Having a single copy of evidence makes it hard to shareinformation. But when that evidence is digital, great thingshappen. It can be shared across users and compared side-by-side. Having fifteen different perspectives of a singleevent will let investigators build a more immersive model ofwhat took place at the crime scene.‖ – Bitcurrent Brand new, socially disruptive market Generates massive amounts of video data All video and analysis tools stored in the Amazon cloud Evidence.com is a scalable SaaS model Shared, elastic computing resource
