Cloud Storage of NGS data

With our cloud storage service, you no longer have to worry about long term storage, capacity, maintenance or security of your data. By opting for Gold Tier cloud storage, you no longer need to secure your own hardware or get worried about your NGS data get lost.

We have two options to manage your NGS data produced in our facility:

Gold Tier
We can host a storage service for your NGS data, by means of a Google Cloud Bucket. The provisioned Bucket is under our administration, and we provide you the necessary access to it. The principal investigator (PI) is responsible for requesting access to the bucket for his/her collaborators. You will be billed on a quarterly basis for the storage usage. We provide a cost simulator to support you in defining the optimal storage policy. The storage policy can be modified when your requirements change.

Gold Tier billing will start from April 1, 2022, in order to provide a substantial transition period for you between the current system and the new tier based system.

Silver Tier
This is the default / standard tier. We provide your NGS data through download links. These links and the data will be available only for 90 days. You need to store the data on your own data storage solution. After 90 days, the data will be deleted from the Genomics Core servers. The data storage costs are included in your sequencing project.
