Other Cloud Providers

Amazon Web Services

While Hail does not have any built-in tools for working with Amazon EMR, we recommend the open-source tool developed by Carlos De Niz with the Avillach Lab at Harvard Medical School


Hail can be installed on a Databricks Spark cluster on Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, or Google Cloud Platform via an open source Docker container located here. Docker files to build your own Hail container can be found here. And further guidelines about working with Hail can be found on the Databricks documentation.


There are no known open-source resources for working with Hail on other cloud providers. If you know of one, please submit a pull request to add it here!

If you have scripts for working with Hail on other cloud providers, we may be interested in including those scripts in hailctl (see above) as new modules. Stop by the dev forum to chat!
