IBM - Accelerating Genomics Research using an Integrated High Performance Computing Solution

Advancements in genomics research pose challenges for IT leaders, researchers and developers to analyze, manage, share and store large scale data with greater efficiency at lower cost. High-performance best practices in computing and storage solutions are required to process the data produced efficiently. The genomics pipeline workflow must be optimized using workload management software in order to fully utilize the available resources. Data that is used less often must be archived so that it is stored cost effectively, but still be easily available. We will discuss compute and data challenges, the latest IBM architecture for a high performing genomics research platform and real-world strategies adopted by leading genomic research institutes for large scale data projects.
