Introducing Nextflow Tower - Seamless monitoring of data analysis workflows from anywhere
The past month Seqera Labs introduced Nextflow Tower, a management and monitoring system for Nextflow data analysis pipeline applications.
Tower allows users to track the execution of any Nextflow workflow application in real-time, providing useful insights about execution metrics and metadata, making them accessible throughout an easy to use web interface.
The Tower project shares with Nextflow the same design principles and philosophy, that is: first and foremost agility, hiding unnecessary complexity and empowering users to deploy their data pipelines at scale in a portable manner across platforms.
Cloud Native Data Pipelines
Cloud Native Data Pipelines Several weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2019 in Barcelona. The first thing that became apparent is the sheer size of the event, almost to the extent that it was overwhelming! The number of start-ups involved and buy-in from incumbents all strongly suggest that the Cloud Native ecosystem is here to stay. As Kubernetes enters its 5th year, we wanted to understand what exactly is cloud native?
We are thrilled to announce the launch of Seqera Labs as a new spin-off from the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) founded by Paolo Di Tommaso and Evan Floden.
The company is focused on tackling the challenges associated with the management of data-intensive and high-throughput computation by empowering the next generation of big-data applications and offering enterprise-grade software, support and services based on the Nextflow technology stack.
Nextflow has been developed at the CRG since 2013 and is a fast-growing scientific workflow orchestrator widely used for running genomic and precision medicine applications.
