Life Science - High Throughput Sequencing

Life Science Data platform for storing, sharing and analyzing Genomics and Clinical & Pharmaceutical Research

Storage Challenge

The Life Science Industry’s need for storing sequence processing and research data creates a substantial need for scale-out storage. The constantly increasing storage needs in genetic sequencing environments puts a heavy strain on storage infrastructure. As data grows, scale-out storage becomes vital in the continual sustainability of the array. In the life science industry, research data is always processing while high speed file search places an emphasis on the importance of performance. As research data iterations grow exponentially, the need to access research data on demand requires the most demanding performance.

- High capacity requirements are needed for sequencing

- Many sets of storage structures needed for sequencing

- Heavy file look up results in creating iteration after iteration of data. This leads to performance and storage issues

- High work flow increases the likelihood of system compromise
