Evolving Considerations for Data Storage in Life Sciences

June 5, 2019

The latest lab instruments are driving the need for powerful IT resources in the life sciences, including data storage. Laboratory technologies are evolving rapidly. The latest instruments for life science research enable scientists to visualize highly detailed 3D models of protein molecules and assemble genomes in a fraction of the time they could in the past.New lab instruments are also producing tremendous amounts of data. For example, in the field of genomic research, nextgeneration sequencing (NGS) instruments can output 1 TB of data per hour. Cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) is another burgeoning field that can produce massive data volumes. With cryo-EM, researchers study protein molecules at cryogenic temperatures, taking numerous images of each molecule and constructing 3D models. Researchers then use those models to study cancer at a molecular level and develop strategies for combating emerging viruses, such as Zika. The cryo-EM workflow can generate 5 TB of data in 24 hours.

CDAIT Digital Transformation

whitePaper | November 26, 2019

There has been much said about the Internet of Things (IoT) and what it can bring to business and society - creating a more deeply connected world, informed by data sourced from connected things, made better by smarter, more meaningful actions and interactions. These views often focus on how IoT technical solutions can deliver this new future, emphasizing the technology DNA of IoT devices, networks and applications. We have found, however, both through research and experience, that while technology is, in fact, the core of IoT’s DNA; it is just a piece of the puzzle needed to deliver on IoT’s promise. With 60% of IoT projects still struggling to move out of proof-of-concept and scale successfully2 there is more to IoT success than technology alone. What is needed and how can business leaders plan better for IoT success?
