What is the QIIME EC2 image?

The QIIME EC2 image is a pre-built image containing QIIME and its dependencies developed for the Amazon Cloud. Any problems should be brought up in the QIIME Forum.

The QIIME EC2 image will allow users to load a fully-functional QIIME environment in their own Amazon Web Services (AWS) accounts to make use of the compute resources available in Amazon’s cloud.

To get started working the QIIME EC2 image, see Working with QIIME on Amazon Web Services EC2.


We’d like to acknowledge the support of AWS: the QIIME EC2 image was developed using an AWS in Education (for Researchers) grant of compute resource time.
