This Week in AWS, Oct 27-2013

AWS is “growing very very, strong… what you have seen is a really nice steady acceleration of growth since Q4 last year.” stated Amazon’s CFO Tom Szkutak, with its third quarter sales reaching $960 million mark, which ended on September 2013.

AWS collaboration with Baylor, DNAnexus enabled them to largest-ever cloud-based analysis of genomic data, which required 2.4 million core-hours of computational time and it generated 440 TB of data.

“Having access to this much data was unique, Many institutions do not have the local compute resources and infrastructure to support large scale analysis projects like this one, so we were lucky to come together with DNAnexus and Amazon Web Services to make this project possible.” said Dr Reed an assistant professor in the Human Genome Sequencing Center at Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center.
