Webcast -NGS With Globus Genomics & Dell EMC Isilon

The rapid advances in the application of next generation sequencing for translational research are driving the dramatic rethinking and re-architecting of IT infrastructures that will enable moving and sharing of genomic data more broadly.

Isilon with Intel® Xeon Phi™

This whitepaper presents the configuration for an Intel Xeon Phi co-processor and an Dell EMC Isilon clustered NAS utilizing NFS. The intent is to provide a quick setup guide when using the two technologies together.

IRODs Best Practice Guide

iRODS is a data management system that has been widely adopted for use with unstructured file data, especially data used in various fields of scientific research such as bioinformatics, climate science, environmental studies, physics and astronomy. This paper explores some of the best ways for using iRODS with Isilon clustered NAS to enhance and extend the overall functionality of the entire solution.

Bridging Isilon NAS IP to InfiniBand With Mellonox

This white paper explains how to configure a Mellanox SwitchX Series switch to bridge the external network of an Dell EMC Isilon cluster to an InfiniBand network.

Petascale Genomics With Cloudera & Isilon

During this webinar we review how distributed computing tools (i.e., the Hadoop ecosystem) can be used to significantly advance the state-of-the-art research such as scaling genome-wide association studies and large-scale data integration of public databases. We also cover the ADAM project for rebooting genomics ETL on top of Spark.

A Storage Solution that evolves with Next-Generation Sequencing

For most organizations performing NGS, the IT department has to deliver on performance and capacity needs, planning for the future, and cost-efficient solutions. This blog explores solutions to the challenges associated with keeping up with data volumes while meeting these needs.

Unlocking the secrets of DNA – moving towards predictive healthcare
