Vice President Biden today announced an NCI collaboration with two Commercial Cloud Providers — Amazon and Microsoft — which will each host a copy of the genomic data maintained at the GDC, at no cost for two years. The NCI intends to make the data on these clouds accessible to researchers through the GDC and CGC Pilots, and to partner with the cloud providers to understand data usage patterns and plan for future sustainability.
