DRAGEN on AWS

DRAGEN on AWS’ EC2 F1 Instances enables ultra-rapid, accurate, and cost-effective NGS data compute and storage.

DRAGEN is in the process of being deployed on Amazon Web Service’s newly available Amazon EC2 F1 instances, which are Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA)-enabled instances in the cloud, potentially reducing analysis times from 26 minutes for a whole genome to real time.  A DRAGEN cloud configuration provides users with the flexibility to scale up to the cloud during times of high capacity and return to onsite analysis when demand is reduced. The DRAGEN Cloud is accessible as a standalone web portal or on the AWS marketplace.

Cloud Compute and storage

What is an FPGA?

Amazon’s AWS Cloud Computing Service launched a new instance type (F1) with field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). What exactly is FPGA technology?

The promise of FPGA’s is that they are reprogrammable chips that can be reprogrammed on the fly and tuned for specific applications, making them 30x faster than CPUs. The FPGA can be programmed to perform many operations in parallel, and the operations themselves can be of almost any width, large or small. This highly parallelized model is ideal for building custom accelerators to process compute-intensive problems.

Ultra-Rapid Genomics Cloud

The DRAGEN Cloud is a secure, scalable and public platform for virtual ultra-rapid analysis of next-generation sequencing data. DRAGEN’s technology will be deployed on Amazon Web Services’ Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) F1 Instances, which are field programmable gate-array (FPGA)-enabled instances in the cloud. The DRAGEN™ Amazon FPGA Image enables real-time genomic analysis and data compression, cost savings, and seamless and secure cloud deployment.

New users of DRAGEN’s technology can analyze their genomic data in just minutes through the cloud, while existing users of onsite DRAGEN systems can now operate as part of the secure hybrid cloud. The DRAGEN Cloud features the same capabilities of DRAGEN Onsite, including FPGA-accelerated algorithms, compute and storage. Both systems can be managed through the DRAGEN Web Portal, featuring an easy-to-use graphical user interface.

Amazon EC2 F1 Instances

Amazon Web Services’ F1 instance is the cloud’s first custom-programmable, hardware-accelerated compute instance using Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). When DRAGEN is programmed on AWS’ F1 Instances, it enables improved/accelerated ultra-rapid compute and optimized storage that the DRAGEN onsite platform provides. DRAGEN on F1 Instances accelerate whole genome analysis by as much as 30x over general-purpose CPUs, while also reducing storage costs due to Edico Genome’s Just-In-Time (JIT) Compression Technology that reduces files sizes by 70%.

The DRAGEN Cloud is accessible as a standalone web portal or on the AWS marketplace. The platform is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, regulations developed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to protect the privacy and security of patients’ health information
