Bionimbus: a cloud for managing, analyzing and sharing large genomics datasets.

Heath AP, Greenway M, Powell R, Spring J, Suarez R, Hanley D, Bandlamudi C, McNerney ME, White KP, Grossman RL - J Am Med Inform Assoc (2014)

Bottom Line: Bionimbus also includes Tukey, which is a portal, and associated middleware that provides a single entry point and a single sign on for the various Bionimbus resources; and Yates, which automates the installation, configuration, and maintenance of the software infrastructure required.Most members of the research community have difficulty downloading large genomics datasets and obtaining sufficient storage and computer resources to manage and analyze the data.Cloud computing platforms, such as Bionimbus, with data commons that contain large genomics datasets, are one choice for broadening access to research data in genomics.

Screenshot of the Tukey console from the Bionimbus Protected Data Cloud. A user can click an image and then click the button labeled ‘Launch’ to start one or more virtual machines. Different images contain different tools, utilities, and pipelines. Users can also create their own custom images containing specific pipelines, tools, and applications of interest.
