Scientific Data Explosion: Adapting IT Infrastructure So Research Can Thrive
Adam Kraut, BioTeam - Scott Jeschonek, Avere Systems - Tim Carroll, Microsoft Azure
About this talk
The advancements in scientific computing and healthcare are coming fast—from next generation sequencing onto precision medicine, “big data” and artificial intelligence. We’re embarking on a massive convergence of clinical analysis and information systems, and many are not prepared. With these advancements in technologies, comes higher demand for both compute and storage to degrees difficult to comprehend. An NCBI published study predicts that up to 40 exabytes of storage capacity will be needed by 2025 just to support the growth of sequenced human genomes.
Adapting to this exciting shift in science will require changes in the way we think about IT infrastructure. In this webinar, BioTeam’s Adam Kraut will discuss…
•How science changes faster than IT infrastructure, and what we can do to keep pace.
•Converged infrastructures and their impact on research productivity.
•How machine learning and microservices are changing the way we architect Cloud solutions.
In addition, you’ll hear how companies are already supporting HPC workloads in hybrid cloud environments to increase analytic throughput efficiently. These workloads supply adaptability to changing research needs, integration into existing resources, and scalability to support growing demand for both compute and storage capacity.
As cloud storage options move into every data center, understanding how to keep options open and easily move data between providers, both on premises and in the cloud, is important to demanding enterprise environments.…
