Cloud computing and digital transformation have been powerful enablers for genomics. Genomics is expected to be an exabase-scale big data domain by 2025, posing data acquisition and storage challenges on par with other major generators of big data. One of the core Azure services that has enabled us to leverage high performance compute environment to perform genomic analysis is Azure CycleCloud.

At Microsoft, we recognize the challenges faced by the genomics community and are striving to build an ecosystem that can facilitate genomics computing work for all. We’ve focused our efforts on three main core areas: research and discovery in genomics data, building out a platform to enable rapid automation and analysis at scale, and optimized and secure pipelines at a clinical level. One of the core Azure services that has enabled us to leverage an HPC environment to perform the genomic analysis is Azure CycleCloud.
