The Bielefeld-Gießen (BiGi) Service Center of the German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure (de.NBI) is operating an Openstack cloud which will be utilized for this tutorial. In the first part of the tutorial, we will introduce the Openstack cloud computing environment and its underlying services like Nova (Compute) and Swift (Storage). The second part will discuss Docker as a virtualization strategy for easy deployment of bioinformatics workflows on cloud instances. In the third part, we will introduce participants into the BiBiCloud framework before we present some showcases how to scale-out workflows in larger cloud environments in the closing part of the tutorial.
