What can the cloud do for you? Solving health puzzles through cloud computing.

Recent years, the use of computer-aided drug discovery techniques has been increased. These techniques, that includes, for example, virtual screening, compound selection, activity prediction and modelling, allow us to optimize our research work, reducing time and money. But its usage requires software (usually commercial and expensive) and high HPC (high performance computing) systems, which implies to invest money in computational infrastructure.  Cloud solutions for drug discovery helps us to "optimize our optimization process". Cloud systems are elastic, requires less money investment and are always ready, paying only for the resources you are really using.
