Fast Analysis + Fast Storage
Improving analytics performance is one part of the equation; managing the tremendous amounts of NGS data is another. The Edico-Dell EMC combined solution provides the performance and scalability required by the Edico-accelerated workflow. Dell EMC Isilon Scale-Out NAS is a flexible and reliable file system for life sciences applications. Isilon’s storage architecture automatically aligns application needs with performance, capacity, and economics. As performance and capacity demands increase, both can be scaled simply and non-disruptively, allowing NGS analysis applications to continue working.
The Isilon single-volume storage solution consolidates large, semi-structured file-based data workflows into a single system that supports Edico’s multiple DRAGEN pipelines. DRAGEN’s input and output formats are compatible with Isilon’s single storage system. Isilon’s interface flexibility is supported by multiple protocols, such as SMB, NFS, Swift, and HDFS to enable a wide variety of genomics pipelines, user access methods, and analysis environments.
