YellowDog is the most advanced Scheduler connected to NextFlow. As an Executor on the Seqera Platform, YellowDog enables Life Sciences companies of all sizes to optimise the compute on which workflows are run.
This can be on-premise, Hybrid-cloud or Multi-cloud. One integration gives access to any compute, on any public cloud and in any region.
Nextflow users can now execute workflows on-premise and in different parts of the cloud, simultaneously. For example, if part of a workflow requires GPUs and these aren’t maintained on-premise, this can be run in the cloud (at the cheapest price) and non-GPU components can be run on-premise or in another part of the cloud.
This can be executed across all major cloud providers. Here’s how we supported Elem Bio through Hybrid-cloud deployment.
OMass Therapeutics, a biotechnology company, achieved a 56.9% cost saving when it ran a large part of its drug discovery research pipeline – involving virtual screening of 337 million compounds – with YellowDog.
The 337 million compounds were analysed on 4,000 low-cost spot compute instances, taking a total of 7 hours. Using OMass’s existing setup, the same number of analyses would have taken a whole year.
With intelligent scheduling and automated provisioning, YellowDog can build, deploy and tear down compute rapidly and automatically, depending on customer preferences.
Each workflow can have its own auto scaling requirements, determined in the NextFlow configuration. Users can set instance limits and YellowDog automatically handles the scaling up or down.
Different organisations have different needs, challenges and priorities. You can choose to optimise your use of compute for cost, speed, scale or even carbon footprint (through YellowDog’s Eco Score).
With auto-scaling and provisioning, you’re able to utilise any resource that YellowDog provisions or connected on-premise resources, for multiple NextFlow pipelines.
Utilising YellowDog as an Executor enables users to access any compute type, any cloud and any region.
YellowDog’s algorithm ensures you’re optimising your usage, through preferences set by you or automatically chosen by YellowDog if you prefer. The platform has highly configurable DevOps and FinOps controls.
We worked with AMD and Google Cloud to produce this free guide to computational life sciences in the cloud.
The guide covers how to bring speed, scale and cost reduction into your cloud computing.
