HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology is a nonprofit organization dedicated to innovating in the field of genomic technology and sciences to address a spectrum of biological challenges.

On average, HudsonAlpha’s Genomic Services Lab produces 15,000 to 16,000 whole genomes worth of data per year. Each of those genomes are represented as a 200 to 300-gig file, creating a massive amount of data that must be stored and analyzed. Additionally, HudsonAlpha has a strong commitment to sharing research data, placing it into the hands of those who can truly make a difference with it. Seventy to eighty percent of the data gathered by the institute is made available to scientists and researchers around the globe. For HudsonAlpha, producing and moving such large amounts of data resulted in a multitude of challenges regarding high latency, dropped packets and other issues with network traversal. Given the importance and time sensitivity of the data transmissions, the organization needed a strong, proven solution that could keep their data durable and available, allowing them to focus on furthering scientific research.

The interconnectivity is the important part. When you look at the massive amounts of data that we produce and the fact that 70 to 80 percent of it is going to leave this building and go to a collaborator site somewhere in the world, our tolerance for high latency, dropped packets, or issues with network traversal is very low.
