Giving Life to Life Sciences

It’s more than storage—it’s a life changed

Faster Time-to-Insights

Innovations in genomics, predictive biology, drug discovery, bioinformatics, personalized medicine, and other life sciences disciplines depend on the ability to rapidly store, retrieve, and analyze unprecedented volumes of information. For many institutions, legacy storage systems just aren’t fast enough or scalable enough to meet the challenging requirements of modern life sciences applications.

The explosion in genomic and proteomic information, especially from next-generation sequencing, and the emergence of data-intensive molecular diagnostics techniques demand a scalable, high-performance storage infrastructure.

The Panasas® ActiveStor® Solution and its scalable capacity ensure you can maintain multiple versions of genomic databases and quickly make them available for computational chemistry, bioinformatics, and other data-intensive applications. You can effectively manage large data sets, such as microarray or mass spectrometry images, within a single scalable namespace. Researchers share the data to streamline collaboration.

Accelerate the work of scientists and researchers with the ultrafast streaming performance, true linear scalability, and enterprise-grade reliability of the ActiveStor storage appliance.

Foundation for Life Sciences Applications

Boost performance as much as 50 times by connecting Panasas storage directly to computing nodes. One IT administrator can easily manage hundreds of terabytes of ActiveStor Solution, helping to cut operating costs. Panasas storage is the perfect foundation to increase research productivity and enable groundbreaking scientific insights.

GENOMIC SEQUENCING

Processing human genome data requires a combination of cloud and on-premises storage. Reliable Panasas real-time scale-out network-attached storage (NAS) is the preferred solution of research facilities worldwide.

 

Bioinformatics

The ActiveStor solution is specifically architected to handle the mixed data files and formats common to bioinformatics and interacts seamlessly with cloud data formats.

 

Computational Chemistry

Computing calculations for computational chemistry often take days, weeks, or even months. The ActiveStor solution is reliable enough to handle the long-term computing needs of researchers.

 

Computational Biology

Performing 3-D modeling of cell organelles requires highly stable storage. The ActiveStor solution offers the power to properly render, analyze, and visually experiment with real-time 3-D results.

 

Proteomics

Analyzing proteins requires the power to process tertiary (3-D) structures, where shape dictates function. The ActiveStor solution delivers the reliability and performance proteomics researchers need.

 


Customers Driven by Performance

Companies want their data to be accessible, secure, and easy to manage. Our customers accomplish this and more with the ActiveStor solution: the conduct advanced genomic research using the latest sequencing technology, render visual effects for animated films, design advanced aircraft with complex computer-aided engineering and finite element analysis models, and optimize the extraction of oil-and-gas deposits through seismic processing-based analysis.

"Meeting our commitments to researchers requires extremely high computational power that is available 24/7. Panasas lives up to its promise of terrific performance with negligible maintenance and administration time."
