Bioinformatics at the speed of cloud: revolutionizing genomics with Nextflow and MMCloud
This talk will explore the potential of integrating Nextflow with MemVerge’s cloud automation tools, specifically the Spot-Surfer cost-effective spot instance scheduler and the WaveRider dynamic right-sizing service, to enhance the efficiency of bioinformatics pipeline execution and genomics data analysis via cloud computing. Additionally, WaveWatcher provides real-time, detailed insights into cloud costs, job-level resource utilization, and even the carbon footprint. The integration of these services with Nextflow, facilitated by the nf-float plugin, allows MMCloud to function as an executor, treating each execution step as an individual batch job. This synergy is further augmented by Nextflow Tower, which offers comprehensive workflow management, leading to reduced operational costs, accelerated execution times, and superior cloud resource management. This exploration of Nextflow, MMCloud, and MemVerge’s services holds the promise to revolutionize genomics data analysis and establish a foundation for a more sustainable and efficient future in cloud computing.
