Use of Containers for Custom Software Development at the NCI for AWS Cloud and On Premises

March 20, 2024 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET

Are you designing custom software for cancer research and looking for better ways to package, deliver, and store that software for the cloud? If so, you’ll want to attend this Containers and Workflows Interest Group (GWIG) webinar for tips on how to use technologies like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), and AWS Fargate.

NCI CBIIT’s Mr. Krish Seshadri, senior cloud architect, and Mr. Lawrence Brem, federal manager for software development, will offer tips on how to:

  • leverage technologies, such as Docker, within today’s cloud platforms (e.g., AWS, Amazon ECS, and AWS Fargate),
  • produce images as well as package and bundle code using Docker Build, and
  • develop content for Drupal (a content management system) using Docker.

This webinar is part of the monthly CWIG webinar series. CWIG brings together data scientists, bioinformaticians, computer scientists, and researchers to learn more about cloud computing and container technologies, workflows, and pipelines that could drive cancer data science.

The webinar series features a variety of presenters from across NIH, industry, and academia. Though cancer research is the focus of the series, unrelated data science and cloud computing topics are still welcome. In previous CWIG webinars, speakers have discussed:

  • NIH cloud programs like the Cancer Genomics Cloud, its fellow NCI Cloud Resources, and the NIH Science and Technology Research Infrastructure for Discovery, Experimentation, and Sustainability (STRIDES).
  • commercial cloud platforms for biomedical data storage and computing.
  • pipelines and tools for deep learning and various omics analyses.
