Challenges

The university had the following challenges before choosing Pure Storage.

  • Exponential increases in the volume of genomic data demanded new approaches to high-performance data storage. 
  • Needed to rethink the genome sequencing process.
  • Adding storage capacity required unacceptably large capital outlays and downtime.

Results

Business Transformation

Researchers and clinicians can sequence a greater volume of DNA samples in far less time, generating valuable new insights and, in some cases, delivering faster answers to life-and-death questions.

IT Transformation

  • Load times for a critical sequencing index accelerated by 3x.
  • Decoupling of storage from compute engines simplifies the addition of storage capacity, delivering agility needed for production workflow while lowering cost.
  • Multiple types of data workflows supported concurrently with no impact on performance, giving researchers critical flexibility to explore a broader range of questions.
