Cloud Archiving of Drug Discovery Data
This biopharmaceutical company works to discover and develop small molecule therapeutics for the treatment of cancer, inflammatory/immunologic disorders, and other diseases. Its drug discovery and development platform creates a pipeline of programs across the writer, eraser, and reader classes of epigenetic targets to develop new drugs in oncology, inflammation, and other therapeutic areas.
Their research involves the analysis of genome sequencing. From an IT perspective this requires a large amount of high performance storage. Over time, some of this data is only rarely accessed but must be maintained and protected. The company was looking for an effective archive solution that provides secure on-line access to large amounts of data on a periodic basis when needed.
