Panasas ActiveStor Scientific Workflow Benchmark Report

Keep pace with data-intensive workflows in Life Sciences

It’s no secret that data generation rates and volumes continue to skyrocket in Life Sciences and scientific research. Advancements in key scientific technologies have led to the development of new instruments that produce larger datasets and require more complex data analysis. This shift is elevating the need for high-performance, high-capacity storage to keep up with scientific workloads.

This scientific workflow benchmark report describes the storage demands created by two types of analysis, reviews the specific requirements created by three scientific tests, and examines the test results for two high-performance storage solutions used in each type of analysis.

Types of analysis:

  • Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS)
  • Cryogenic Electron Microscopy (CryoEM)

Type of scientific tests:

  • Burrows-Wheeler Aligner (BWA) genomic indexing
  • BWA genomic alignment
  • CryoEM 3D classification

Learn how Panasas stacks-up against other HPC architectures to meet your scientific demands.
