Life Sciences

Life Science and bioinformatics organizations pursue their research objectives in a myriad of ways, however their storage and data management challenges remain consistent. Constraints around massive scalability, storage performance and the accommodation for a wide variety of file types, sizes and access patterns are common challenges. At the same time, managing hundreds of millions to trillions of files is an impossible endeavor. With Qumulo Core, Life Sciences customers benefit from the ability to:
