Present life sciences research organizations deals with petabytes of data which requires new performance and data management for IT infrastructures and storage solutions. To address the performance and data management issues found in life sciences organizations, a high performance hybrid file system is used which stores data closets to compute resources that can modernize infrastructure and enable discovery. The whitepaper addresses the following questions: What are the considerations for modernizing scientific compute research platforms? What is the impact of infrastructure issues on research and discovery projects? What changes have greatest impact on infrastructure? What are the characteristics of a modern research environment infrastructure? What is the need for adopting a high performance hybrid file system?
What is Cloud Computing ?
A type of internet-based computing, Cloud computing refers to delivery of computing services over the internet or "the cloud" instead of using local storage and computing. The different computing services include servers, storage, databases, networking, software, applications, and analytics. Cloud computing eliminates the need for hardware acquisition, maintenance, installation of software.
What is Cloud hosting ?
Cloud hosting is the provision of storing data on servers with multiple connections that can be accessed over the internet. Cloud hosting is cost efficient and guarantees the security of data as many different servers are used rather than a single server or data center. It also offers on-demand scalability and increased accessibility.
What is Cloud infrastructure ?
Cloud infrastructure consists of back-end elements primarily comprising of server hardware components, virtual machines, storage and networking facilities, and software that provide access to the cloud for applications and other services. It can also refer to on-demand service delivered through the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) model.
