I am currently trying to build up a server for a small bioinformatics company that handles proprietary information at times. We would like to use AWS, and I've been told they would like a custom url that they can simply go to, where following a company login, they can access tools like BLAST or IMGT database to run these analyses in-house, such that the proprietary info doesn't get sent to public servers. As such, I know we would need compute, data storage, as well as some sort of domain in which we can centralize these applications.
What combination of AWS services would be suitable for this task? I've looked into S3, EC2, Route 53, Appstream and more, but due to lack of experience with AWS, I am not sure what the best methods would look like.
NCBI has an AWS AMI for Blast. My best advice is to start from https://ncbi.github.io/blast-cloud/, then determine if you and your team have the necessary expertise to help this company.
You should find the optimal solution to your problem. If you don't know what services AWS provides, then how do you know you should be using AWS?
