Cambridge, United KingdomBig Data and Cloud Computing http://training.csx.cam.ac.uk/bioinformatics/event/2473649 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/big-data-and-cloud-computing Recent advances in genomics, proteomics, imaging and other technologies, have resulted in data being generated at a faster rate than they can be meaningfully analysed. In this course we will show you how cloud computing can be used to meet the challenges of storage, management and analysis of big data. The first half of the course will introduce cloud infrastructure technologies. The second half will cover tools for collaborative working, resource management, and creation of workflows. The instructors will demonstrate how they are using cloud computing in their own research. N.B. If you sign up for this course, you will be automatically registered for an [AWS educate account](https://aws.amazon.com/education/awseducate/), which will provide you with sufficient AWS credits to complete the course exercises. If you decide to continue using cloud computing after the course, you will need to either purchase more credits or apply for a grant from programs like: [AWS Cloud Credits for Research](https://aws.amazon.com/research-credits/), [Microsoft Azure for Research](https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/academic-program/microsoft-azure-for-research/) or [Google Cloud Platform Education Grants](https://cloud.google.com/edu/).
