The Genomics Institute at Mount Sinai School of Medicine Speeds Up Genetic Research with Avere

PITTSBURGH Feb. 15, 2011 Avere Systems Mount Sinai School of Medicine FXT Series

Internationally regarded for its dedication to medical science, Mount Sinai School of Medicine is home to an array of leading research institutes, centers and laboratories, all of which work toward rapidly translating advances in basic science into innovative patient care.  Modern experimental technologies for genetic and genome sequencing projects involve massive datasets that require researchers to not only think about the biology of their projects but the technologies needed to handle the analysis of hundreds of millions of genomic sequences generated.

The Avere FXT Series contains both solid state storage and traditional hard drives to optimize performance without compromises on all types of workloads. Reads, writes, and metadata are allocated to storage media via Avere’s unique approach to dynamic tiering. Allocation algorithms running on the FXT appliances monitor access frequency patterns and workload type and manage data placement on multiple internal tiers. This increases performance, distributes the workload in the cluster and minimizes requests to the mass storage server. Movement of data occurs in real-time—not in hours or days—and occurs at the file or block level. All of this is done automatically by the system—there are no complex policies to configure or update.
