IDC - Accelerating High-Concurrency Genomics Workloads


This IDC white paper discusses the storage needs of the growing life science market, focusing more specifically on genomics workflows and key processes, customer requirements, and storage infrastructure needs as genomics shifts from an emerging innovation to a data-intensive, mainstream research workhorse. The document then turns to an overview of the Pure Storage FlashBlade "big data flash" platform, discussing the applicability of this purpose-built AFA design to genomics workflows.
