Researchers with overwhelming amounts of sequencing data and no quick-and-ready access to large computational resources must still ship hard drives through the mail to facilitate off-site data analysis or share their data with collaborators. Current Internet bandwidths available to most researchers are not large enough to make uploading and downloading genomic datasets convenient. And while cloud computing advocates have made considerable noise about how it provides researchers with an alternative to mail-based data transfer, the cloud does depend on existing bandwidth.
