In the new age of big data, applications are leveraging large farms of powerful servers and extremely fast networks to access petabytes of data served for everything from data analytics to scientific discovery to movie rendering. These new applications demand fast and efficient storage, which legacy solutions are no longer capable of providing.
The evolution of genomics in recent decades has seen the volume of sequencing rise dramatically as a result of lower costs. Massive growth in the quantities of data created by sequencing has greatly increased analytical challenges, and placed ever-increasing demands on compute and storage infrastructure. Researchers have leveraged high-performance computing environments and cluster computing to meet demands, but today even the fastest compute environments are constrained by the lagging performance of underlying storage.
Pure Storage has significant expertise creating scalable, enterprise-class, flash-optimized storage platforms, and with FlashBlade, Pure Storage has crafted a turnkey, purpose-built platform that is well suited to cost effectively handle the performance and capacity requirements of genomics workflows. Pure Storage has differentiated itself from more established enterprise storage providers by delivering an industry-leading customer experience, as shown by its extremely high NPS, indicating it knows how to meet and is committed to meeting customer requirements. Whether genomics practitioners plan an on-premises deployment or a cloud-based deployment for their genomics workflows, they should consider the performance, cost, and patient care advantages of the Pure Storage FlashBlade when choosing a platform, particularly if they plan to retain data for a long time and use it frequently.

The Data Genomics Index is a first-of-its-kind benchmark analysis of data stored within a typical enterprise environment. This report reveals insights into data growth, data age, and data type thereby providing organizations with the comparison standard for beginning to take action on their data.
In addition to the Index, Veritas has founded the Data Genomics Project. This community of likeminded data scientists, industry experts and thought leaders will come together to surface the true nature of enterprise environments, build the data-genome that matters for information management, and share the discussion with a world struggling to solve tremendous data growth challenges.
The emergence of genomics and advanced gene sequencing techniques has made the collection and storage of data a centerpiece of biomedical research. As the data generated in biomedical research becomes richer and richer, having the infrastructure in place to deal with data growth efficiently is going to be a cornerstone of biomedical data management. This white paper examines a joint solution that features data reduction technologies combined with a network-attached storage system that offers storage optimization capacities along with an affordable, manageable, and scalable petabyte-ready storage platform.
In terms of health care IT, what does the next five years look like? The IT team at Harvard Medical School — Partners HealthCare Center for Genetics and Genomics (HPCGG) has focused its efforts on building a viable IT foundation with the right hardware and innovative software. The team also hopes to ensure that IT is not a constraining factor in realizing the benefits of next-generation sequencing technologies. Read this white paper to learn how HPCGG is implementing a cost-effective storage system that can integrate with its existing cluster environment for exponentially faster data access.
In the world of biomedical research, particularly in the fields of genomics and personalized medicine, the exponential volumes of data created are rapidly overtaking conventional data storage technologies.
