Zero-Cost, Guided Proof-of-Concept Program

In genomics research, IT challenges often threaten to slow the progress of critical science. In particular, the volume and velocity of genomic data creates challenges for efficient management and analysis. As a result, many organizations performing genomics research are turning to the public cloud as a way to augment and/or outsource their scientific computing capability.

To do so, they need modern, cloud-integrated BioIT solutions capable of delivering the following attributes:

  • Frictionless cloud integration  – Don’t waste time refactoring applications or rewriting genomic pipelines
  • Scalability to handle massive genomic data sets – Consolidate and manage petabytes of genomic data (e.g. BAM files) to facilitate comprehensive analyses
  • Elasticity to support bursty peak workloads – Scale processing and storage resources seamlessly and on demand

Agosto, in partnership with Google Cloud, Intel, and Elastifile, is taking data-centric genomics workflows to the cloud. We’ll drive the definition, design, and implementation of your end-to-end cloud integrated pipeline…including data migration, workflow integration, compute scheduling, in-cloud storage, and in-cloud data management. You focus on the science and we’ll handle the rest.

Even better, if you qualify for our Guided PoC Program we’ll take you from idea to working proof-of-concept at NO COST TO YOU.
