Life Sciences Big Data: Accelerating time to discovery
Data centers are complex enough without the need for multiple storage tiers to address the various missions of a Life Science sequencing flow. DDN understands the CIO's mandate to consolidate, simplify and provide a unified approach to data management all in a single name-space and while delivering superior performance.
Our Life Science customers have documented massive increases to their genomics pipelines: up to 75% faster than legacy storage and 30% faster than a leading competitor! DDN powers over 60% of the Top100 High Performance Computing systems. We know better than any other storage manufacturer how to accelerate your time to discovery. Our powerful storage platforms are helping the leaders in Life Sciences such as the Sanger Institute achieve these results every day.
Our SFA™ platforms are the most widely deployed, high performance storage systems. They provide a complete solution for Ingest, Align & Archive in one unified platform. In addition, we offer a wide range of data management solutions from plug-and-play NAS for Linux, Windows and VMware, to enterprise-grade parallel file systems, which provide unprecedented performance to Search, Align and Correlate data-sets.
Collaboration can be the key to discovery and DDN leads the way in the deployment of private clouds with WOS®. This hyperscale object storage platform provides a simple and intuitive solution for seamless collaboration – in record time.
