This is an open invitation to members of the Life Sciences community to join us for a 3-month experiment, where
we will apply the cloud computing service model to workloads on remote Cluster Computing
resources in the areas of bio, pharma, and chemistry.
However, here, we face additional challenges such as security and data
privacy, incompatible licensing models, moving data back and forth, and a dozen
others challenges, so that it’s time to experiment how to achieve the benefits
of the cloud computing model for the life sciences industry.
You can participate in this experiment as an industrial end-user in need of instant additional computing power accessible remotely. We will identify for you the best suited resource provider, contact your software provider if necessary and ask for joining the team, and an HPTC expert who helps to implement your application and data onto the remote resource. There is no money involved for participating in this hands-on experiment. We are all just curious to study the end-to-end process of putting the ‘Team of Four’ together, look for computational resource for your Life Sciences application, implement and run your workload, and get you the final results.
