Solution architecture for S3 Glacier object restore

Genomics workflows, Part 4: processing archival data

Genomics workflows analyze data at petabyte scale. After processing is complete, data is often archived in cold storage classes. In some cases, like studies on the association of DNA variants against larger datasets, archived data is needed for further processing. This means manually initiating the restoration of each archived object and monitoring the progress. Scientists […]

Architecture for a deployment across two logical AWS Outposts

Deploying Oracle RAC in AWS Outposts via FlashGrid Cluster

Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers are deploying AWS Outposts as a fully managed solution that delivers AWS infrastructure and services to on-premises or edge locations for a truly consistent hybrid experience. Those hybrid cloud workloads can require highly available Oracle databases running on- or close-to premises. One way to meet this requirement is Oracle Real […]

An elastic deployment of Stable Diffusion with Discord on AWS

Stable Diffusion is a state-of-the-art text-to-image model that generates images from text. Deploying text-to-image models such as Stable Diffusion can be difficult. Currently, Stable Diffusion requires specific computer hardware known as graphical processing units (GPUs). You can lower the bar to entry by offloading the text-to-image generation onto Amazon Web Services (AWS). Discord is a […]

Workflow manager for genomics workflows

Genomics workflows, Part 3: automated workflow manager

Genomics workflows are high-performance computing workloads. Life-science research teams make use of various genomics workflows. With each invocation, they specify custom sets of data and processing steps, and translate them into commands. Furthermore, team members stay to monitor progress and troubleshoot errors, which can be cumbersome, non-differentiated, administrative work. In Part 3 of this series, […]

Data pipeline for the healthcare industry using IBM CP4D on AWS

Building a healthcare data pipeline on AWS with IBM Cloud Pak for Data

Healthcare data is being generated at an increased rate with the proliferation of connected medical devices and clinical systems. Some examples of these data are time-sensitive patient information, including results of laboratory tests, pathology reports, X-rays, digital imaging, and medical devices to monitor a patient’s vital signs, such as blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature. […]

Solution architecture for Snakemake with Tibanna on AWS

Genomics workflows, Part 2: simplify Snakemake launches

Genomics workflows are high-performance computing workloads. In Part 1 of this series, we demonstrated how life-science research teams can focus on scientific discovery without the associated heavy lifting. We used regenie for large genome-wide association studies. Our design pattern built on AWS Step Functions with AWS Batch and Amazon FSx for Lustre. In Part 2, […]

Let's Architect

Let’s Architect! Optimizing the cost of your architecture

Written in collaboration with Ben Moses, AWS Senior Solutions Architect, and Michael Holtby, AWS Senior Manager Solutions Architecture Designing an architecture is not a simple task. There are many dimensions and characteristics of a solution to consider, such as the availability, performance, or resilience. In this Let’s Architect!, we explore cost optimization and ideas on […]

Email delta cost usage report in a multi-account organization using AWS Lambda

AWS Organizations gives customers the ability to consolidate their billing across accounts. This reduces billing complexity and centralizes cost reporting to a single account. These reports and cost information are available only to users with billing access to the primary AWS account. In many cases, there are members of senior leadership or finance decision makers […]

Architecture diagram for Helm chart installation of ADOT and fluentbit to an existing Amazon EKS cluster

Amazon CloudWatch Insights for Amazon EKS on EC2 using AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry Helm charts

This blog provides a simplified three-step solution to collect metrics and logs from an Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) cluster on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) using the AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry (ADOT) Helm charts repository and send them to Amazon CloudWatch Logs and Amazon CloudWatch Container Insights. The ADOT Helm charts repository […]

Building event-driven architectures with IoT sensor data

The Internet of Things (IoT) brings sensors, cloud computing, analytics, and people together to improve productivity and efficiency. It empowers customers with the intelligence they need to build new services and business models, improve products and services over time, understand their customers’ needs to provide better services, and improve customer experiences. Business operations become more […]
