Azure

03/10/2022

SeqsLab is optimized for Azure and is deeply integrated with Azure Batch, Azure Data Lake Storage, Azure Web Apps, Azure Active Directory, and security to manage all your bioinformatics workflow lifecycles and operations.

You can use SeqsLab as an Azure managed application that is deployed and transactable through Azure Marketplace. SeqsLab will be deployed with a subscription-based solution using an entire Azure infrastructure as a service (IaaS)-based solution, enabling Just-In-Time (JIT) access and allowing Atgenomix or our trusted service partners to request elevated access for management, troubleshooting, or maintenance.

Deploy the SeqsLab platform on Azure

You can deploy SeqsLab like a standard app from the Azure marketplace. For more details, see Deploy SeqsLab on Azure.

Select the plan that suits your needs

SeqsLab currently offers two plans on the Azure markeptlace. The Standard plan allows you to manage genomics data repository and containerized bioinformatics tools registry, and execute automated analysis pipelines described by Workflow Description Language (WDL). It is also suitable for biomedical analytics and data science workloads. The Premium plan provides additional support for more advanced features such as running and managing SQL and ML pipelines.

Pay for what you use

Only pay for the computing resources you use per minute granularity. We use a simple, pay-per-use pricing by the number of Atgenomix Compute Units (ACU). The metrics consists of the cluster compute resources consumed and/or the amount of data processed.

Important

The price excludes the Azure infrastructure or usage-based costs incurred by the resources deployed or used by SeqsLab.
