DDN Life Sciences
THE COMPLETE DATA LIFECYCLE PLATFORM FOR LIFE SCIENCES
The current wave of machine generated Life Sciences data is providing insight to biological and chemical systems which will expand understanding, end suffering and drive funding for Genomics, Clinical and Pharmaceutical Research.
However, data-Ingest, distribution and analysis of the petabytes of machine generated data are adding a new layer of complexity, cost and derived inefficiencies.
This rapid expanse in data has weakened the data centers ability to meet the needs of today’s researchers.

THE ALL-IN-ONE PLATFORM
INGEST, ALIGN, COLLABORATE & ARCHIVE
DDN has developed efficient storage solutions for Big Data Genomics applications
Accelerating and consolidating data-intensive genomics environments for alignment, search and collaboration.
DDN uses the power of a parallel file system to reduce time to discovery in genomics with best class high performance storage appliances that simplify collaboration while accelerating data analytics.
Our Genomics Research customers have documented massive increases to their big data genomics pipelines:
Up to 2x faster and much simpler and more cost-effective to scale as data sets move from TB to PB in size.
DDN powers 7 of the Top 10 fastest supercomputers, more than 60 percent of the Top 100 and delivers more bandwidth to the TOP500® than all other vendors combined.
They provide a complete solution for alignment, search and collaboration in a unified appliance that can scale effortlessly to petabytes.
Our SFA appliances are the most widely deployed, high performance storage systems for genomics.

NEXT GENERATION SEQUENCING STORAGE
Genome Research Institute Reduces Storage Complexity and Accelerates Research Efforts
Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute uses innovative, high-performance DDN® Storage to deliver unprecedented levels of throughput and scalability to support tens of thousands of data sequences requiring up to 10,000 CPU hours of computational analysis.
ACCELERATE DISCOVERY & TIME TO MARKET WITH
HIGHER PERFORMANCE, SCALABILITY AND EFFICIENCY
One of the measurements of success in Pharmaceutical Research is in the number of new chemical entities (NCE), or new molecular entities (NME) discovered.
In silico programs like AutoDock™ and OpenEye™, ROCS are important in narrowing the field of NCE/NME candidates for high-throughput in vitro screening. These in silico programs are extremely disk intensive, accessing billions of small files per run.
Further, their results need to be shared with other departments, divisions or facilities on a global scale. This requires a storage-solution that can deliver high performance while facilitating collaboration.
DDN provides a comprehensive storage solution
Optimized for Pharmaceutical work-flows
Based upon our integrated appliances, our solutions deliver best in class performance for a wide range of disk-intensive applications, such as analytics work-flows.
Case in point, SAS Grid “running SAS Grid on DDN… offered the most consistent and predictable performance of any shared file system tested to date”.
DDN’s EXAScaler is extremely versatile
With extended data services in addition to the parallel client protocol, customers can access the same data using standard file protocols (NFS/SMB), object storage (S3) or HDFS to share or manipulate data as needed.
With secure multitenancy, auditing, and end to end encryption, organizations can rest assured their data is kept secure and safe.
Driving discovery, improving productivity and exceeding performance expectations
DDN’s advanced system monitoring tool, Insight, delivers actionable information to maintain the health and optimize the performance of your storage investment, at a scale other vendors can reach.
We have a world-class staff of subject matter experts to ensure you continually maximize your data center investments and minimize TCO.
DDN is the go-to partner for analytics, access and collaboration. Let us show you how to consolidate and accelerate your discovery process today.
