The Virtues of Combining Locally Managed Storage with iRODS

I recently had the privilege of participating in this year’s annual iRODS users group meeting in Durham, NC.  Aside from interacting with a great group of people, I solidified some of my views on the value companies can get from iRODS deployments, and really clarified how iRODS and Quantum solutions complement each other.  I’m definitely excited that Quantum has joined the iRODS consortium and started product testing.

Optimize Your Storage to Support Cutting-edge Scientific Instrument Data Streams

Rapid advances in laboratory instruments are redefining IT requirements for life science organizations. To more quickly and completely analyze the tremendous volumes of data produced by next-generation sequencing (NGS) and cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) instruments, organizations are increasingly investing in additional super computing resources to crunch the larger data sets these instruments are generating on a daily basis. 

Transitioning to an All-IP Workflow but Concerned about 4K Streaming Performance? New Test Results May Surprise You.

Like most video production and post-production studios, your organization is probably implementing new tools to meet rising demand for finished content in multiple, high-resolution formats. Perhaps you are upgrading software or buying powerful new editing platforms that can manipulate and master such large files. However, to ensure that your workflow doesn’t have any bottlenecks in streaming 4K content, especially in an all-IP storage environment, understanding what kind of performance your storage infrastructure can deliver should be a high priority.
