Whitepaper

HPC Data Storage Enables Microbiome Research and Understanding of COVID-19 and Other Diseases

Microbiome research is on the rise because the microbiome is linked to a plethora of conditions and diseases, including COVID-19. Accelerating microbiome research is a priority at the UC San Diego Center for Microbiome Innovation (CMI). There, and at other research institutions, such research introduces new high-performance computing challenges due to the large volumes of data, the I/O-intensive demands of microbiome computational analysis, and the multi-disciplinary and collaborative nature of the research. Download this white paper to learn how CMI tackled these problems using an HPC storage infrastructure that delivers consistently high performance, speeds data exploration and discovery, and simplifies storage management for administrators.
