Isilon, Illumina, and Dell jointly offered a fully integrated high-performance computing solution with the sequencing of any size to perform leave SEATTLE, United States October 23, 2009. In terms of storage infrastructure, the American biotech company iLumina Inc. relies on Isilon. The scale-out NAS-systems are part of the fully integrated new high-performance-computing-(HPC) solution IlluminCompute, which is used in conjunction with the proven genome Analyzer of the manufacturer. The complete solution of IlluminCompute consists of a powerful Sequenzierungssoftware, the high performance blade servers by Dell and Isilons scale-out NAS. Result is a flexible, highly scalable turn-key system for the data analysis of human genes.
With IlluminCompute, so far locally powered, expensive and complex sequencing by a single high-performance computing and storage infrastructure can be replace and tighten the sequencing and analysis of genomic data. For more information see Technology Investor. Background information IsilonIQ with the Use of the Isilon IQ scale-out NAS-systems a single high-performance, highly scalable storage pool can be build to store large amounts of unstructured data such as, for example, genomic sequences and to provide common access. Calculations can be carried in a very short time, so that results are available faster. Thanks to the underlying native file system, can be managed from 10 terabytes to down to 5,000 terabyte central. This facilitates the management of storage administrators. Another plus is the pay-as-you-grow pursued by Isilon \”-principle in the storage capacity and performance scale linear and independently settle.\” This modular architecture approach has the advantage that as required, to build up their infrastructure the own requirements, customers.
In this way you can always calculate both the acquisition and operating costs. Background information IluminCompute with IlluminCompute is now specifically Complete solution developed for sequence analysis on the market available that combines the hard – and software, as well as highly available storage. The direct operational system characterized by high throughput rates, the cost of managing servers and hard disk, however, is limited to an absolute minimum.
