DDN BLOG

Many life sciences and genomics organizations are using high performance computing to manage their data growth and mine their databases for information that can advance new scientific discoveries. While applications such as Big Data, IoT, machine learning and artificial intelligence are accelerating these innovations, they are also overloading the data access and management infrastructure used to support them. This large volume of data is creating data management and analytics challenges that can no longer be addressed with traditional scale-out NAS or other older storage architectures.

DDN® is the number one supplier of high-performance data-storage systems to the genomics research community. Our platforms reduce the time to discovery and our subject matter experts help researchers and scientists accelerate their discovery process.

This week, we’ll be discussing these challenges and sharing best practices for solving them at the Bio-IT World Show in Boston. Here are some highlights of our planned activities at the show:

  • We’re excited once again to host the Best Practices for Big Data in Life Sciences Research workshop on May 23 at the start of the show. This year’s event will be chaired by Toby Bloom of the New York Genome Center and includes speakers from The Institute of Cancer Research, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and others. They will discuss different approaches for overcoming the challenges of managing genomics, microscopy, and modeling data from pipeline to cloud. You can view the full agenda and register to attend on our event page.
  • We’ll also be in Booth #357 at Bio-IT World showcasing how DDN is helping users like Van Andel Research Institute, University of Edinburgh, and The Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics achieve higher quality results in much less time. Our high-performance storage solutions deliver a single, end-to-end platform for the entire research data lifecycle that can reduce time to discovery in the most demanding environments.

We hope you can join us at these events next week. If you’re not attending Bio-IT World, you can learn more about our innovative solutions for life sciences here.
