Johns Hopkins Genomics at The Johns Hopkins University, Progenity, Inc. and University of Utah Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute Among Impressive Roster of Life Sciences and Medical Research CustomersCompany to Sponsor, Exhibit and Present at Upcoming Bio-IT World Expo in Boston
SEATTLE – May 8, 2018 – Qumulo, the pioneer and leader in creating universal-scale file storage, today announced that the world’s largest life sciences and medical research institutions rely on Qumulo File Fabric (QF2) to accelerate their data-intensive workflows and speed discovery of new medical breakthroughs. The company also announced that it will be sponsoring, exhibiting and presenting at Bio-IT World Expo, taking place May 15-17 in Boston. In addition, Qumulo was recently named a finalist in the 2018 Best of Show People’s Choice Award. Winners will be announced at a live event on the Bio-IT World Expo floor at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, May 16.“Life sciences and medical research places heavy demands on storage – the types of demands that legacy storage systems simply cannot cost effectively address,” said Peter Godman, co-founder and CTO of Qumulo. “Modern storage systems require comfortable scale to billions of files and beyond to accommodate today’s constantly growing volume of data. As important, researchers must be able to access that data from anywhere in the world – whether it is stored on-premise or in a public cloud. With QF2, the world’s largest life sciences and research organizations can take advantage of the industry’s first storage architecture designed to manage massive, globally distributed file sets with ease, accelerating the pace of scientific research, drug discovery and important medical breakthroughs that have an impact on human lives. Unlike legacy storage systems, only Qumulo was designed to meet the scale and performance requirements of today’s most data-intensive life sciences workflows.”
The growing list of Qumulo customers in life sciences and medical research includes Carnegie Institution for Science, CID Research, Channing Division of Network Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, DarwinHealth, Inc., Georgia Cancer Center at Augusta University, Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at University of Washington, Johns Hopkins Genomics at The Johns Hopkins University, Progenity, Inc., UConn Health, University of Utah Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute, and many others that are using QF2 to accelerate their data-intensive workflows and speed discovery of new medical breakthroughs.
Key QF2 use cases for life sciences and medical research to be highlighted at Bio-IT World include:
Qumulo is the pioneer of universal-scale file storage and is the only storage system designed to cost-effectively manage the volume and geographic dispersion of today’s computing. QF2 is the world’s first implementation of universal-scale file storage and was designed from the ground up to meet all of today’s requirements for scale. QF2 is the highest performance file storage system in the data center and the public cloud, and can scale to billions of files, making it the solution of choice for life sciences and medical research institutions. With QF2, customers have the freedom to store, manage and access their file-based data in any operating environment, at petabyte and global scale.
- Next generation genomic sequencing. The ability to extract genetic information — the biological code of all life — has undergone a dramatic transformation in the past decade. Next generation sequencing (NGS) has increased the storage requirements for genomic data dramatically. As sequencers become more advanced, they produce more data. Legacy storage systems cannot meet the demands of modern NGS workflows. QF2 is an ideal solution for storing, managing and accessing genomic sequencing data. It handles small files efficiently, and its support of SMB, NFS, FTP and REST means that all phases of the genomic analysis pipeline can use the same QF2 cluster. QF2 is a modern, file storage system that can scale to billions of files and that runs in the data center and the public cloud.
- Research and clinical imaging. Managing throughput and latency are critical for research imaging. Researchers want to view images in real time, and are sensitive to latency. Viewing images, especially 3D images, can require many random reads from a large file. In addition, images are being processed while researchers are accessing previously generated image data. All these activities put heavy demands on the storage system. QF2 is a modern, highly scalable file storage system that runs in the data center and in the public cloud. QF2 handles large and small files with equal efficiency and can scale to billions of files. Its performance, cost, real-time visibility and simplicity make it ideal for institutions engaged in cutting-edge research.
