Data gravity has pulled computing to the Edge and enabled significant advances in hybrid cloud deployments. The ability to run analytics from the datacenter to the Edge, where the data is created and lives, also creates new use cases for nearly every industry and company. However, this movement of compute to the Edge is not the only pattern to have emerged. How might these other use cases impact your storage strategy?

This interactive webcast by the SNIA CSTI will focus on the following topics:

  • Emerging patterns of data movement and the use cases that drive them
  • Cloud Bursting
  • Federated Learning across the Edge and Hybrid Cloud
  • Considerations for distributed cloud storage architectures to match these emerging patterns

Moving Genomics to the Cloud: Compute and Storage Considerations
Thursday, September 9, 2021
10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

The use of genomics in modern biology has revolutionized the speed of innovation for the discovery of medicines. The COVID pandemic response has quickened genetic research and driven the rapid development of vaccines. Genomics, however, requires a significant amount of compute and data storage to aid discovery. This session is for IT professionals who are faced with delivering and supporting IT solutions for the required compute and data storage for genomics workflows. It will feature viewpoints from both the bioinformatics and technology perspectives with a focus on some of these compute and data storage challenges.

We will discuss:

  • How to best store and manage these large genomics datasets
  • Methods for sharing these large datasets for collaborative analysis.
  • Legal and ethical implications of storing shareable data in the cloud
  • Transferring large data sets and the impact on storage and networking
