Do more with your data
The life sciences industry is awash in a data deluge, and it shows no sign of slowing down. Forward-thinking organizations need healthy data ecosystems that enable them to extract the most value from that data.
That’s where we come in.
With Panasas ActiveStor® appliances running the PanFS® data engine, you can consolidate your organization’s IT with a simple, reliable, and versatile data storage solution that streamlines data management and drives innovation across your workflows.
Prepare your data infrastructure for the coming AI wave
The global Life Sciences AI Market size in 2021 was valued at $1.3 billion. The projected value for 2030 is $6.7 billion, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20%.1 59% of life sciences leaders reported that COVID has accelerated their organizations’ approach to deploying AI.2
Artiﬁcial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are set to transform nearly every aspect of life sciences – from R&D, to clinical trials and diagnostics, to supply chain and regulatory review processes. As these technologies evolve from “nice to have” to “must have,” organizations must ensure that their data infrastructure can support AI/ML initiatives.
“My team is already struggling to effectively leverage the huge volumes of unstructured genomics data that we have, and our data center is groaning under the pressure. Effective AI integration across our organization feels unreachable.”
Whether your training datasets are large ﬁles, small ﬁles, or a mix of the two, Panasas seamlessly adapts and scales to your needs. Our all-flash, hybrid, and high-capacity storage platforms will not only accelerate your current workflows, but also set you up for successful AI deployment.
Ready your storage for critical lab upgrades and ever-increasing data volumes
When a team upgrades the detectors on their microscopes, those new cameras can easily double their data collection throughput. If their data storage can’t keep up with the increased volume, this poses huge problems.
“Now that we’ve doubled all the throughput, is the storage layer fast enough, since we’ve doubled all the bandwidth needs as well? Do we have enough storage if we now have twice as much data ﬁlling it?”
The global Life Sciences and Lab Equipment Market size is estimated to reach $49.6 billion by 2026.3 Healthcare and life sciences represent over 30% of the world’s total data volume, with a CAGR of nearly 36%.4
Your data generation rates are not going to decrease. With inﬁnite scalability, Panasas allows you to cost-effectively grow the capacity of your data storage as your research expands. The PanFS data engine’s built-in Dynamic Data Acceleration automatically manages the movement of your ﬁles between SSD and HDD and maximizes the full potential of NVMe so that you don’t have to.
Break down your data silos to extract maximum insights and unleash collaboration
Siloed research data that is not Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable costs the European economy at least €10.2 billion every year.5
Over the past decade, biopharmaceutical R&D partnerships have more than doubled in number.6
There’s a paradox in life sciences right now: While more data than ever is flowing through pipelines, the value of that data goes largely untapped. This is usually because the data ends up siloed in storage systems that can’t communicate. In an industry where collaborative efforts drive breakthroughs, this presents a critical failing.
“Our analysts spend most of their time ﬁnding and acquiring data, and those are all one-off efforts. Our organization needs easier data access and simpliﬁed data sharing practices across our extended networks.”
Panasas ActiveStor solutions break down data silos to transform how organizations manage, access, and share their data. Consolidate your silos onto a single scalable, versatile, and simple storage solution that unlocks access to your datasets and promotes collaboration.
Eliminate your data storage headaches to reclaim your time, money, and energy.
Open-source solutions require considerable stafﬁng effort to set up and maintain. Employees with these skillsets are in demand and rare. Rather than supporting research efforts, IT teams at life sciences organizations are busy ﬁghting storage ﬁres.
“We need a low-touch solution that doesn’t require high technical skills. Our budget doesn’t allow for multiple administrators or time-consuming tuning of open-source storage systems.”
Data workers worldwide spend a full 44% of their workday on unsuccessful data activities.7 A single day of high-performance data storage downtime costs between $100,000 to $1 million.8
Panasas is a commercially supported storage appliance with decades of reliability engineering built into the ﬁle system – and we deliver this at the industry’s lowest total cost of ownership. Our platform’s simplicity means that as many as 1,500 storage nodes can be managed by a part-time administrator. As your system grows, you won’t need any more staff to maintain it, so you can focus on science instead of data storage.
