Life Sciences and Medical Research Turn to Qumulo for Modern Scale-Out File Storage
Qumulo, the leader in modern scale-out storage, announced that leading life sciences and medical research institutions are choosing Qumulo to accelerate their data-intensive workflows, including cancer and infectious disease research, genomics, bioinformatics, proteomics, microscopy, and big data. Johns Hopkins Genomics (including the NIH CIDR Program at The Johns Hopkins University), the Center for Infectious Disease Research, Georgia Cancer Center at Augusta University, Channing Division of Network Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Progenity, Inc., and DarwinHealth, Inc. have joined the rapidly growing number of customers turning to Qumulo to speed discovery of new medical breakthroughs.

“Workflows in life sciences are characterized by massive volumes of machine-generated file data pipelined into downstream processes for analysis,” said Peter Godman, co-founder, and CTO of Qumulo. “The rapid growth of file-based storage and processing requirements compounded by limited IT resources has created a scalability crisis for life sciences and medical research organizations. Efficient, high-performance processing of file-based data is at the heart of innovation and discovery in life sciences — something legacy file storage cannot provide. Qumulo has become the clear answer for data-intensive life sciences workflows.”

Qumulo accelerates data-intensive workflows in life science and medical research including cancer and infectious disease research and microscopy. Analysis of tissue and cancer tumor studies generates millions to billions of small files, and the expanding bio-repository file data requirements are outgrowing the capacity of legacy storage. Qumulo’s modern scale-out storage provides researchers with faster analysis times and IT staff with real-time visibility and control at scale. The high performing, cost-effective storage platform allows for a single file system to be shared across groups to prevent long wait times previously associated with sharing large data sets among groups. Qumulo is the modern replacement for legacy scale-out storage architectures that cannot keep up with modern data requirements.
Ron Hood, director of IT at the Center for Infectious Disease Research said, “Qumulo Core’s modern architecture is built for the future and that’s what closed the deal for us. We didn’t want to spend our budget on legacy scale-out storage systems that are obsolete or will be in two to three years. Qumulo supports our needs today and well into the future, so that we can achieve faster times to analysis for our most critical research.”
