New technologies are revolutionising biological re- search and its applications by making it easier and cheaper to generate ever-greater volumes and types of data. In response, the services and infrastruc- ture of the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL- EBI, www.ebi.ac.uk) are continually expanding: total disk capacity increases significantly every year to keep pace with demand (75 petabytes as of Decem- ber 2015), and interoperability between resources remains a strategic priority. Since 2014 we have launched two newresources: the European Variation Archive for genetic variation data and EMPIAR for two-dimensional electron microscopy data, as well as a Resource Description Framework platform. We also launched the Embassy Cloud service, which al- lows users to run large analyses in a virtual environ- ment next to EMBL-EBI’s vast public data resources.
