Import from cloud or FTP

If your data is stored with a cloud provider or accessible via FTP then you can use the Upload Center to easily import your data into your Sequencing.com account.

You can import a file from most cloud providers including Amazon (AWS), Azure, Google Cloud, Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive and many others.

To import files from all other cloud providers

  • Copy the link (url) of the file that is stored in the cloud
  • Make sure the file can be shared using that link
    • Either sharing for that file has to be turned on or the link has to be set to 'public'
  • Return to Sequencing.com's Upload Center
  • Paste the link (url) of the file into the Upload from Cloud or FTP field
  • Press the Import button
    • The file import will begin and you don't have to do anything else.
    • Once you receive the notification that the import has started you can navigate away from the Upload Center.
      • You do not have to stay logged in to your Sequencing.com account for the import to continue. You can even close your web browser or turn off your computer.
    • Importing a file that is 5GB or larger may take several hours to complete.
      • You'll receive an on-screen notification and an email once the entire file has been fully imported into your Sequencing.com account.
