DRAGEN on Microsoft Azure
You can run DRAGEN analysis on Microsoft Azure using DRAGEN Bio-IT Platform for Genomic Data Analysis on Microsoft Azure. For information on using DRAGEN, see the Illumina DRAGEN Bio-IT Platform support site page. For information on using Azure, see the Azure documentation available on the Microsoft site.
If you are using an Azure Batch account, see DRAGEN on Azure Batch for more information.
To use DRAGEN Bio-IT Platform for Genomic Data Analysis on Azure, make sure you meet the following requirements.
|•||DRAGEN Multi-Cloud license. For more information, contact Illumina Technical Support.|
|•||Azure cloud subscription.|
|•||Quota for NP-series virtual machines (VM).|
|•||Azure command-line interface (CLI). For instructions on installing the Azure CLI, see the Azure documentation available on the Microsoft site.|
|•||Genomic data uploaded to your Azure Blob storage account.|
DRAGEN on Azure is available in the following regions with field programmable gate array (FPGA)-enabled, standard NP-series virtual machines.
|•||West US 2|
DRAGEN requires FPGA hardware. You must request access to the FPGA-enabled, NP-series VMs.
The vCPU requirements for NP-series SKUs are in increments of 10. When requesting an updated quota, DRAGEN recommends requesting vCPUs in batches of 10. The instructions for running DRAGEN on Azure require a minimum increase of 10 vCPU quotas for NP-series machines.
To make sure you have a quota for NP-series VMs or to increase a quota, navigate to your Microsoft Azure portal, and then do as follows.
|1.||Select Subscriptions, and then choose your subscription.|
|2.||Under Settings, select Usage + quotas.|
|3.||Enter NP into the search bar to filter for the NP-series.|
The quota list displays Standard NPS Family vCPUs.
|4.||If you do not see any results, select Request Increase. For more information on requesting a quota for NP-series VMs, see the Azure documentation available on the Microsoft site.|
