* Sreedharan et al. Oqtans: the RNA-seq workbench in the cloud for
complete and reproducible quantitative transcriptome analysis.

The authors describe an open source transcriptome analysis software
package, Oqtans. The package contains a variety of existing analysis
tools (from short-read alignment, transcript quantification and
expression analysis) assembled into a comprehensive workflow. The
package can be either run locally or as a virtual machine in the cloud
using the AWS. One innovative feature is the availability of comparing
the efficiency of the integrated tools on the same data set. Oqtans is
a highly modular software package that can be easily extended. It also
offers the possibility to create customized workflows based on the
integrated tools available.

Beyond detailing the creation of Storage Pod 2.0, Backblaze also provides some interesting insights into the world of cloud storage. In terms of raw hardware, 1 petabyte now only costs about $57,000. Using Storage Pods, Backblaze can provide 1PB with power, rack space, and bandwidth for three years, for just $95,000. By comparison, 1PB of storage using Dell’s PowerVault arrays costs no less than $502,000 over three years. If you want to store 1PB in Amazon’s S3 cloud, it will cost you just under $2.5 million.
