  • Hybrid Cloud Outcomes: Transforming Research IT to Support Personalized Care Hybrid Cloud Outcomes: Transforming Research IT to Support Personalized Care Aaron Black (Inova Translational Medicine Institute), Jeff Tabor (Avere), Mark Johnston (AWS) Recorded: Oct 13 2016 63 mins
    The Inova Translational Medicine Institute (ITMI) applies genomic and clinical information from individuals to develop personalized healthcare for patients. It is a division of Inova Center for Personalized Health (ICPH), which connects researchers, clinicians and consumers to integrate genomic research for patient care, prevention and wellness.

    ITMI’s Informatics team saw the potential risk of rapid data set growth causing slowed research and increased demand for compute and storage resources. In this webinar, Aaron Black, Director of Informatics for ITMI, will share his innovative hybrid cloud solution that uses a high performance caching layer to couple existing on-premises compute and storage with cost-efficient cloud-based resources.

    Jeff Tabor, Senior Director of Product Management and Marketing for Avere Systems, and Mark Johnston, Director of Business Development for Amazon Web Services, also discuss how ITMI supports large genomic and clinical data sets within their companies.

    Learning Objectives:

    - Discover the objectives of ITMI clinical research programs and how they collaborate with other organizations for studies and to leverage predictive analytics that can guide patient care
    - Learn how ITMI developed and executed a hybrid cloud infrastructure to manage massive research data growth and improve scalability to optimize cost effectiveness and deliver on its mission
    - Discover how ITMI has eliminated redundancies of storing petabyte scale research data between cloud and on-premises storage while managing access to that data for research compute using both cloud and owned resources.
    - Gain insight into technologies and services essential to the topology design and delivery with discussion among supporting panelists

  • Cloud Power: Data Acces and Orchestration Cloud Power: Data Acces and Orchestration Mike Requa (Cycle Computing), Scott Jeschonek (Avere) Recorded: Aug 23 2016 29 mins
    As cloud computing becomes more widely used, the complexity of managing workloads can become more complex. Sometimes this requires the use of more than one cloud service provider. Instead of trying to manage all of these different providers, cloud orchestration offers a more time and cost-effective solution. By keeping data management under control with workflow automation, organizations can instead focus on larger objectives.

    This demo video provides an overview of an easy cloud orchestration solution, integrating Avere's high-performance vFXT Edge filers into the CycleCloud orchestration technology offered by Cycle Computing.
  • Transparent Footprints: Optimizing HPC Workloads with Colocated Infrastructure Transparent Footprints: Optimizing HPC Workloads with Colocated Infrastructure Rui Gomes (RVX), Leigh Huntridge (Avere), and Jorge Balcells (Verne Global) Recorded: Aug 3 2016 55 mins
    Facing build or lease options for their rendering farm and storage, RVX, a growing special effects studio in Iceland, needed to factor high-performance demand and environmental impact into their cost analysis. As they weighed their options, a plan formed with the help of two providers.

    Rui Gomes, chief technology officer at RVX had challenging projects ahead that demanded seamless access to storage resources to render films like 'Everest'. Their needs were quickly outpacing their capacity in their in-house data centre and moving to a cloud service was not an option due to the content needed to remain in a controlled environment. He faced the decision to grow what he owned or look at colocation options that could handle his high performance computing (HPC) needs for complex rendering workflows. In the end, he was able to design a solution that allowed him to check all of the boxes — scalable, accessible and fast with a bonus of an environmentally-friendly footprint. Next steps: deliver powerful, exciting virtual reality (VR) experiences using the same infrastructure.

    In this webinar, Gomes and his selected partners walk through his evaluation process, talk about outcomes, and discuss new opportunities. In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    - How Gomes compared options, prioritized objectives, and evaluated costs
    - About new opportunities in virtual reality using the same infrastructure
    - How distance of the co-located infrastructure became a non-issue even with high performance demands
    - Important factors in choosing a colocation partner when considering calculated cost benefit and enterprise environmental impact
