SPEEDS DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT
OF RARE CHILDHOOD DISEASES
“Clearly, informatics is the bottleneck in genomics. Our goal is to keep pace with the data deluge in both our clinical and research environments so we can quickly analyze data to produce meaningful insights…Ultimately, we needed a more flexible, powerful approach than traditional scale-out NAS could deliver.”
– Shane Corder, HPC Systems Engineer
