The BioBam Bioinformatics Cloud Platform is an AWS based cloud system for high-performance, secure and scalable bioinformatics analysis. With the BioBam Cloud we offer a highly optimized, self-sustained HPC solution which offers a very performant system at minimum expense for your analysis.
|Your data integrity is paramount to us. BioBam is a AWS Technology Partner and our solution is supported by the certified infrastructure of AWS. The AWS environments are continuously audited, with certifications from accreditation bodies across the globe. We use data transfeer encryption to a VPC to guarantee a safe working environment. Account information is kept secure with sophisticated, state-of-the art AWS permission policies and authentification services.|
CloudBlast allows you to execute standard NCBI Blast+ searches directly from within Blast2GO PRO in a dedicated computing cloud. Blasting has always been a bottleneck in homology based bioinformatics analysis and neither public resources nor local installations could provide satisfying solutions to the majority of you. With this new approach we want to provide a permanent solution to this problem.
CloudIPS allows to run EBI's InterProScan on the BioBam Bioinformatics Cloud Platform 10 times faster, more reliable and secure.
BioBam Bioinformatics Cloud Platform also hosts a number of other bioinfirmatics algorithms which are either difficult to setup, maintain or highly platform dependent. Blast2GO can directly access them to perfom scalable, parallelized data analaysis in the cloud.

What are Computation Units?
Each algorithm (e.g. a sequence alignment) performed in our cloud platform consumes a certain amount of computation time depending on the input data, the algorithm and its parameters (e.g. the sequence length (input data) of a blastx (algorithm) against the NR database (parameter)).
These computation units correspond directly to the usage of the cluster (used CPU seconds and network traffic).
A Blast2GO PRO subscription comes with a certain amount of ComputationUnits for free (e.g. 6 million units with a 1 year Blast2GO PRO subscription). Please see the table above. If this does not fit your project requirements, additional units can be purchased. This can be done the moment you subscribe to Blast2GO PRO or once your computation units are consumed.
For the CloudBlast Service you can use the ComputationUnits Calculator on this page to estimate how many units your project requires.
