DNASTAR now has multiple ways for you to take advantage of the power of Amazon Web Services' Amazon Cloud using DNASTAR software: DNASTAR Cloud Desktop, DNASTAR Cloud Assemblies, and DNASTAR Cloud Data Drive.
DNASTAR Cloud products offer many advantages including:
- Access to powerful hardware
- Ability to run multiple jobs simultaneously
- Project monitoring from multiple devices
- Effective remote collaboration
- Flexible licensing
- Easy integration with Lasergene on your desktop computer
The DNASTAR Cloud Desktop allows you to access DNASTAR Lasergene software anywhere in the world, as long as you have an internet connection. The experience of using the DNASTAR Cloud Desktop is no different from using any DNASTAR Lasergene software on your desktop—except the software appears in a web browser window.
DNASTAR Cloud Assemblies is a service accessed through SeqMan NGen that allows you to run and manage NGS assemblies directly on the Cloud. Highlights of DNASTAR Cloud Assemblies include running multiple assemblies simultaneously, viewing the progress of all of your assemblies in a central location, ready access to a wide range of DNASTAR's genome template packages for utilizing dbSNP, COSMIC, and GERP associations, as well as integration with the rest of Lasergene on your desktop for easy analysis.
DNASTAR Cloud Data Drive is a secure service that enables you to quickly upload, download, and manage all of your NGS data on the Cloud, saving you time and disk space. For either primary or back-up storage of genomic data, the DNASTAR Cloud Data Drive is an economical, rapid-response solution to meet your needs, short- or long-term.
DNASTAR Cloud Data Drive is installed with every DNASTAR software license and can be accessed through DNASTAR Navigator.
DNASTAR uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) as the supporting infrastructure for our DNASTAR Cloud software applications. AWS’s world-class, highly secure data centers utilize state-of-the art electronic surveillance and multi-factor access control systems. The AWS virtual infrastructure has been designed to provide optimum availability while ensuring complete customer privacy and segregation.
Whether you use DNASTAR software on AWS using DNASTAR’s Amazon credentials or your own Amazon credentials, your data will be private.
In May 2013, the United States Department of Health and Human Services granted AWS an Agency Authority to Operate under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, which is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The security analysis was performed by an independent organization for the benefit of the United States government and enables US government agencies to use AWS and trust the security measures put in place by Amazon for AWS.
