Virtualize your computing with IaaS

Since the advent of high-throughput sequencing, the number and complexity of biological data has exploded. Though information technology and computers have paralleled this development, researchers rarely meet the computational power and storage capability required to perform the analysis of their data (Ben Langmead and Abhinav Nellore). Infrastructure as a service to the rescue For this, infrastructures as a service (IaaS) have been created to let users run large-scale computing workloads on the cloud – that is, on virtual machines hosted on dedicated infrastructures – and to stock up to exabits of data.   According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, IaaS can be described as:   The capability provided to the consumer is to provision processing, storage, networks, …
