AWS CLOUD COMPUTING
Client is a cutting-edge biotech startup that develops novel DNA sequencing technologies. They have an innovative DNA sequencing solution utilizing Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) platforms.
The client has expertise in developing bioinformatics data analysis pipelines, but lacks the software design and development expertise to create a product from their innovative process.
The NGS platform and bioinformatics software generates a large number of data sets with a large volume of data in each set. This ‘big data’ problem requires a significant amount of computing resources to process and analyze.
The computing workloads required by the client’s process have unpredictable resource requirements for various proof of concept projects that are required to design, build, and test the DNS sequencing product.
The client does not want to raise and commit the upfront capital investment required to build out their own computational hardware and software robust enough to develop the product.
