Is there any free linux server resource available for computing or bio-computing?

The iPlant Collaborative (http://www.iplantcollaborative.org/) has developed and made available a cloud computing service called Atmosphere (https://atmo.iplantcollaborative.org/application), which allows on-demand requisitioning of machine instances, very much like the Amazon EC2 services.

iPlant Atmosphere is free to use for members of the research community, with generous monthly allocations that get automatically refreshed. Any special requests made for more compute time will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

I've been meaning to give the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud a go but haven't had the chance yet. It has been advertised as free, as long as you don't overuse the free quota (http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/).

Their free tier lasts for one year and permits using only t2.micro instance which has lower performance than an average laptop.

Indeed! I finally got around to registering to the AWS and the t2.micro provides one CPU [Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2670 v2 @ 2.50GHz] and 1G of RAM. I wrote a blog post on how I got started http://davetang.org/muse/2015/04/17/getting-started-with-aws-support-basic/.

Remember to stop your instance when you finished using it, otherwise amazon will continue charging you!!

You can use Cloud Free Tier from Webzilla, especially for Bioinformatic and Meteorologic computing. Register here https://webzilla.com/sign-up-for-cloud.html or contact me directly kevit@webzilla.com

Do you mean cloud computing (or similar) resources that you can access for free and that is off-site? If you are at a University and since I see you are in Canada look into Compute Canada resources. They are clusters in different areas of the country that you (and your supervisor) can apply for access too. Calcul-Quebec probably has the best and biggest resources as part of the network, and you aren;t restricted by region for which resources you apply for access too.

Thanks a lot! It is one of the best resources!

No problem, I and my colleagues make a lot of use of CalcuQuebec's clusters. It's a great resource.

DIAG is a shared computational cloud that is available for academic and non-profit institutions for performing bioinformatics analyses.
