These AMIs are customized for on-demand cloud-based NGS analysis via OmicSoft Suite's "Server on the Cloud" add-on, to run with Amazon M4-class instances.

We recommend specifying one of the following latest Mono6-based AMIs within your ArrayServer.cfg Cloud Section, e.g.


(replace the Ami and AmiSnapshot parameters based on your region, using the table below).

If you are installing or migrating a new OmicSoft Server installation, we recommend using our pre-built "OmicSoft Server" AMIs.


Mono6-based AMIs

These AMIs were built using the steps described on Building AWS AMI on Ubuntu 20 and mono 6 and are recommended for all OmicSoft Cloud users unless specifically instructed to use a different AMI, or you built your own AMI following the same instructions.
