Extreme Data Storage: Next Generation Sequencing
This webcast examines storage challenges associated with next-generation sequencing and strategies to manage the exponential growth in data volumes, as well as the successful implementation of a scalable storage solution in a clinical research environment.
The latest generation of life science instruments boasts both huge advances in technology, as well as significant reduction in costs. Today’s sequencers generate data more quickly and in much higher volumes than previous technologies. This poses an opportunity and a challenge for scientists – and has identified new requirements to support the management and storage of data generated by these instruments.
As the research community adopts these new instruments, a robust, scalable architecture is required to meet the dramatically increased storage requirements resulting from this research.
